HC Deb 30 November 1937 vol 329 c1887
73. Mr. Day

asked the Minister of Health whether he is aware that the inhabitants of Croydon were not warned immediately upon the outbreak of typhoid and advised to boil their water before use; and will he make inquiries as to why this precaution was not carried out?

Mr. Bernays

This is a matter which will, no doubt, be invested at the forth-during inquiry, and it would obviously be improper for my right hon. Friend to anticipate the results of that inquiry.

Mr. Day

Is it not the custom to give notice such as that referred to in this question?

Mr. Bernays

I should like to have notice of that question.
