§ Colonel DAY
asked the Minister of Health, the number of prosecutions under the clean meat regulations, instituted in the Metropolitan borough of Southwark, to the last convenient date; whether any warnings have been issued by the medical officer of health for the borough; and, if so, with what result.
I am informed that one prosecution for contravention of the Public Health (Meat) Regulations has been instituted by the Metropolitan Borough Council of Southwark. In that case the defendant was ordered to pay £1 1s. costs. A general memorandum has been issued to all meat traders in the borough, and special warning notices have been sent to six traders. I understand that in each of these cases steps have been taken to remedy the defects complained of.
