HC Deb 29 May 1941 vol 371 cc1985-6
43. Sir G. Jeffreys

asked the Minister of Health whether he is satisfied that the arrangements for the disposal of sewage in rural areas containing large numbers of evacuees and refugees are adequate to prevent the outbreak of disease?

Mr. E. Brown

While the sanitary arrangements are necessarily under strain in some districts, the importance of adequate precautions in areas where there have been large increases in population is realised by my Department and by local authorities.
