HC Deb 08 July 1908 vol 191 c1660

I beg to ask the Secretary for Scotland if he will consider the expediency of deputing instructors in sanitary science to visit the townships in the Islands of Lewis and the other islands in the Hebrides, in order that the people may have explained to them some of the primary sanitary principles such as may be conducive to an improvement in the sanitary conditions of the townships.


Perhaps the right hon. Gentleman will consider the peculiar fitness for this function of the medical officer for Colwyn Bay?


As my hon. friend knows, the local public health authority in the Lewis have at present no margin of funds upon which any further charge can be laid for this or indeed any other purpose.
