HC Deb 30 April 1968 vol 763 c982
9. Mr. Fortescue

asked the Minister of Health whether he will take early action to seek to codify and simplify the law relating to notifiable diseases.

Mr. Snow

We see no need for such action at present in respect of the relevant Acts of Parliament, but my right hon. Friend proposes to revise and consolidate the numerous relevant statutory instruments as soon as possible after the passage of the Health Services and Public Health Bill.
