HC Deb 21 March 1940 vol 358 c2113
40. Mr. R. Morgan

asked the Minister of Health whether he is aware that certain local authorities are using the war to put into force sanitary powers which they have possessed for years, but on which they have hitherto taken no action; and whether he will circularise local authorities advising the postponement of the enforcement of the powers in question?

Mr. Elliot

I am not sure what precise powers my hon. Friend has in mind, and I should be glad if he would let me have particulars of any case which may have been brought to his notice.
