HC Deb 13 May 1907 vol 174 c639
SIR F. CHANNING (Northamptonshire, E.)

I bog to ask the President of the Local Government Board whether he has considered the resolutions passed at the meeting of the National Association for the Prevention of Consumption and other forms of Tuberculosis, urging immediate action in Parliament in pursuance of the recommendations on the recent Report of the Royal Commission on Tuberculosis; and whether he is now able to state what steps will be taken to give effect to those recommendations.


I am aware that resolutions have been passed at the meeting referred to; but I have not at present received copies of them. The recommendations of the Royal Commission relate to matters of much moment, and I am not at present in a position to make any definite statement with regard to the action which should be taken in consequence of them. They are, however, receiving my consideration.
