§ 17. Mr. C. Wilson
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland the annual cost for the treatment of tuberculous, crippled and orthopaedic cases?
§ Mr. Elliot
Local authorities in Scotland incurred a net expenditure of £640,670 on the treatment of tuberculosis in the year 1934–35, the latest year for which information is available. Orthopaedic and cripple cases are dealt with by local authorities under their tuberculosis, child welfare and school health schemes, but I regret that a separate figure for this expenditure is not available.
