HC Deb 12 June 1907 vol 175 c1402
MR. STAVELEY-HILL (Staffordshire, Kingswinford)

To ask the President of the Local Government Board if he can state how many of the 670 rural district councils of England and Wales have, during the last financial year, received from the local taxation account through their county councils one-half of the salaries of their inspectors of nuisances and medical officers of health.

(Answered by Mr. John Burns.) I cannot state the number of cases in which during the last financial year, county councils actually repaid to rural district councils half the salaries of their sanitary officers; but on the 31st March last the number of cases in rural districts in which the officers were acting under conditions entitling the councils of these districts to such repayment was, as regards inspectors of nuisances, 614, and, as regards medical officers of health, 635.
