§ 34. Mr. OTHO NICHOLSON
asked the Minister of Health if he is aware that parents of children attending elementary schools in the county of London are not notified of cases of diphtheria occurring in such schools and given an opportunity of isolating the child who has been attending, and that there is no disinfection of class-rooms in which cases have occurred; and what action he proposes to take?
§ Lord E. PERCY
I have been asked to reply to this question. The arrangements made by the London County Council for dealing with cases of diphtheria occurring in elementary schools are based on experience extending over 20 years, and I am advised that all reasonable precautions are taken. I do not, therefore, think that any intervention on my part is called for.
