HC Deb 17 July 1925 vol 186 c1708W
Colonel DAY

asked the Minister of Health whether, in view of the fact that tuberculisation in childhood affords the final key to the prevention of tuberculosis, he will state what steps are being taken, or contemplated, as to educating public opinion, especially parents or guardians of the young, in order that attention may be focussed on the initial process of this disease?


While expressing no view on the claim in the question as regards tuberculisation, I am satisfied that much valuable educational work on the prevention of tuberculosis is being carried on, and further provision is proposed in the Public Health Bill now before Parliament amplifying the powers of local authorities in this direction.
