County Councils.—Derby, Gloucester, Isle of Ely, Southampton, Sussex (East), Sussex (West).

County Borough Councils.—Nottingham. Southport, Warrington, West Ham, West Hartlepool.


asked the President of the Local Government Board how many areas in England and Wales are now without whole-time tuberculosis officers; and if he will give the names of these areas?


According to —my information twenty-four county councils and twenty-eight county borough councils have appointed whole-time tuberculosis officers, and four county councils and eleven county borough councils part-time tuberculosis officers. The part-time tuberculosis officers are men wholly engaged in public appointments, but whose whole time is not given to the office of tuberculosis officer. The names of the areas are given in List A below, and the eases in which part-time officers have been appointed a-re indicated by an asterisk. It must not be assumed that all the remaining councils have not yet appointed tuberculosis officers, because application for the Board's approval of the appointment is sometimes not made until after the officer has been appointed. In the Metropolis a certain number of whole-time tuberculosis officers have been appointed by voluntary bodies. List B below contains the names of those areas in respect of which no appointment has been notified to the Local Government Board. The particulars given relate to England (excluding Monmouth). I have no information as regards Wales and Monmouth.
