HC Deb 17 February 1944 vol 397 c329
30. Mr. Hewlett

asked the Minister of Health in what directions the extension of industrialisation in the war and the increase of employment has produced perceptible effects on public health.

Mr. Willink

The public health in war-time is affected, whether for good or ill, by a large number of factors and it has not been possible to draw any firm conclusions as to the exact effect of the two factors mentioned by my hon. Friend. I would refer him to Part I of the latest report of my Department, which was presented to Parliament in September last.
