HC Deb 01 December 1938 vol 342 cc590-1
62. Mr. J. Griffiths

asked the Minister of Health whether he has now received the report of the committee, presided over by the hon. and learned Member for Montgomery (Mr. C. Davies) which investigated the problem of tuberculosis in Wales; and whether he proposes to publish the report?

The Minister of Health (Mr. Elliot)

The answer to both parts of the question is in the affirmative.

Mr. Griffiths

When will the report be available?

Mr. Elliot

It was received on 7th November and should be available shortly.

Sir Arnold Wilson

Will my right hon. Friend take steps to publish the evidence upon which the report was based?

Mr. Elliot

The report is very voluminous, and I think that in the first place we had better see the report.

Sir A. Wilson

Will my right hon. Friend put the evidence in the Library, and bear in mind that a report without the evidence necessarily cannot carry the same weight as a report with the evidence?

Mr. Elliot

I will consider it.
