§ Mr. GAVAN DUFFY
asked the Minister of Health what salary was paid per annum to the late medical officer of health at Frizington, Cumberland; if his salary was fixed by agreement; has the period stated in that agreement expired; if not, has he agreed to its cancellation, and, if not, why has the Minister of Health agreed to the appointment of a 2607W second medical officer of health before the agreement with the first one had expired or been properly terminated; if the present medical officer of health for Frizington has any qualification in the public health service; and at what salary he has accepted the position?
§ Lord E. PERCY
The salary for this part-time appointment agreed between the council and the medical officer of health was £130 per annum rising by £5 per annum to £150.
