§ 61. Mr. HOLLINS
asked the Minister of Health whether he will issue instructions to local governing bodies to carry out an annual inspection of lavatories and conveniences in hotels, public houses, clubs, etc., with a view to the replacement of all defective sanitary ware which is considered to be a source of 1559 danger to public health; and will he issue regulations to carry this into effect?
§ Sir K. WOOD
No, Sir. I have no evidence that local authorities need any special stimulus in this matter; nor have I any power to issue instructions or regulations of the kind suggested.
§ Mr. HOLLINS
Will the right hon. Gentleman give consideration to an order of a similar character to be issued, and is he aware that this annual inspection is carried out on the Continent with salutary effect?
