HC Deb 01 March 1927 vol 203 cc224-5W
Colonel DAY

asked the Minister of Health what action has been taken, or is contemplated by Hs Department, with a view to combating the mosquito pest during the summer months?


Since the conclusion of the War my Department, in collaboration with -be British Museum (Natural History), has devoted a great deal of attention to this subject, and has carried out, or assisted in, various investigations, the results of which are embodied in a pamphlet published by the British Museum. This pamphlet gives advice to local authorities as to the best measures to combat the mosquito pests. My Department is also prepared to advise local authorities on request and has done so on many occasions.
