HC Deb 14 April 1920 vol 127 cc1665-6
21. Mr. CLOUGH

asked the Minister of Health whether his Department has now considered the disclosures affecting the health of the people in the Report upon the physical examination of men of military age by National Service medical boards; and whether he is bringing to the notice of the local authorities more especially mentioned the desirability of taking such reform as is possible in the improvement of conditions of housing and industry?


The Report to which the hon. Member refers is only part of a mass of evidence indicative of the need for a re-organisation and extension of public health services and for better housing, but it is impossible within the limits of a reply to a Parliamentary question to set out all the steps to this end which have been taken or are in contemplation.
