HC Deb 23 July 1919 vol 118 c1396W

asked the Minister of Health whether, seeing that a local authority under the Dairies and Cowsheds Order cannot legally appoint a veterinary surgeon as veterinary inspector, and that he must be styled as an inspector of nuisances or assistant, he will review the decision made and sanction an appointment that will make it possible for a veterinary surgeon to be a veterinary inspector?


I would refer the hon. Member to the provision of Section 10 of the Milk and Dairies (Consolidation) Act, 1915, under which a local authority will be enabled, or, if necessary, required, to appoint one or more veterinary inspectors, or to employ for the purposes of that Act and the Milk and Dairies Order any veterinary inspector appointed under the Diseases of Animals Act, 1894.
