HC Deb 05 March 1923 vol 161 cc61-3W

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Overseas Trade Department, as representing the Ministry of Health, if his attention has been drawn to the report of the medical officer of health for the West Riding of Yorkshire dealing with the condition of cowsheds in

the years 1920, 1921, and 1922; and how many of these were adult, juvenile, or child?


The following statement shows the numbers of British emigrants from Great Britain to the undermentioned countries in 1920, 1921, and 1922:

maintaining patients in sanatoria, asylums, and Poor Law institutions, respectively?


The information required is given in the table below in respect of the latest year for which actual or estimated figures are available for England and Wales.

the administrative area; and if he contemplates giving the county council more power to deal with the same?


Yes, Sir; copies of the report have been received. Its effect appears to be that the existing law is not satisfactorily enforced in the county by reason of the small amount of inspection carried out by the district councils who are responsible for its enforcement. If the county council desire to obtain power to deal with the matter, it is open to them under Section 11 of the Milk and Dairies (Amendment) Act, 1922, to apply to the Minister of Health to transfer to them the powers of any defaulting district council.
