HC Deb 10 July 1919 vol 117 cc2048-9W

asked the Minister of Health whether, having regard to the importance of matters relating to the hygiene and health of animals used for human food, the provision of milk from cows free from tuberculosis, the diseases of animals communicable to man, and other similar matters affecting or incidental to the health of the people, he will consider the advisability of placing at least one veterinary surgeon on every Consultative Council to be set up under Clause 4 of the Ministry of Health Act?


The hon. Member's suggestion will be borne in mind in considering the composition of councils or special committees dealing with medical and sanitary administration; but I cannot agree that such an appointment would be desirable in the case of every Consultative Council to be set up under the Ministry of Health.
