HC Deb 23 November 1908 vol 196 cc1752-3

To ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland whether, on the Report stage of the Tuberculosis Prevention Bill, he will agree to insert words which will give individuals or families notified a right of appeal to some properly constituted body before removal from their homes under the provisions of this Bill.

(Answered by Mr. Birrell.) The hon. Member is under a misapprehension in thinking that power is sought under the Bill for the compulsory removal from their homes of persons suffering from tuberculosis.
