HC Deb 09 March 1911 vol 22 cc1410-1

asked the President of the Local Government Board if he was yet in a position to state the results of investigations made into the existence of plague among rats in East Anglia, or does he contemplate presenting a Report to Parliament thereon; and will he consider the advisability of continuing these examinations in the summer and autumn, as such periods are regarded as the most dangerous for the spread of plague infection?


I am expecting to receive very shortly a report on the investigations referred to. Until the report is before me I am not able to say what steps should be taken with regard to its publication. The procedure to be adopted during the summer and autumn will be carefully considered by me.
