HC Deb 20 July 1933 vol 280 c1982
33. Mr. JOEL

asked the Minister of Health whether his attention has been called to the discovery of the hair worm, which is dangerous to human beings, in Worcestershire; and whether there is reason to believe that there is any serious diffusion of this worm generally in England
