HC Deb 24 June 1924 vol 175 c258W

asked the Minister of Health whether there is a department of his Ministry for dealing with matters concerning the administrative work of sanitary inspectors; and, if so, whether that department is under the control of a sanitary inspector or if there are any sanitary inspectors upon the staff of the Ministry in either an advisory or supervisory position?


Questions arising out of the work carried out by sanitary inspectors under the local authorities are not dealt with in any one division of the Ministry of Health but form part of the work of several divisions. Any technical advice required in connection with these questions is afforded by officers of the Ministry who have qualifications, equivalent or superior to those prescribed for sanitary inspectors, but there are no sanitary inspectors as such upon the staff of the Ministry.
