§ 78. Mr. T. GRIFFITHS
asked the Minister of Health if the advertisement which appeared in the Bodmin Guardian of 29th June for a part-time sanitary inspector at a salary of £110 per annum, to include travelling expenses, was first submitted to him for his sanction in accordance with Article 8 of the Sanitary Officers Order; whether he sanctioned the same; and whether, since it has been laid down that it is desirable, in districts possessing a population of over 10,000, that an inspector should devote his whole time to the duties of his office, he will recommend to the Bodmin Rural District Council that a whole-time officer should be engaged at an adequate remuneration?
§ The PARLIAMENTARY SECRETARY to the MINISTRY of HEALTH (Lord Eustace Percy)
The Council have not reported the vacancy, and my right hon. Friend, therefore, has had no opportunity of considering their advertisement. He proposes to arrange for an inspection of the district at an early date, and when he has received the Inspector's Report he will consider whether it is necessary to insist on the appointment of a whole-time officer.
