HC Deb 30 July 1926 vol 198 c2504W
Colonel DAY

asked the Minister of Health what steps have been taken to inform the public of the advantages they can obtain from the tuberculosis dispensaries; and whether he will consider issuing further explanatory literature with regard to these dispensaries and their location in the interests of public health?


I may remind the hon. Member that these dispensaries are provided by the local authorities, and it is for them to take such steps as they think desirable for informing the public of the facilities available at the dispensaries. When next an occasion arises to circularise the local authorities responsible for the carrying out- of tuberculosis schemes, I will consider the question of bringing to their notice the expediency of the periodical issue of information as to the location of the dispensaries and the- facilities they offer.
