HC Deb 14 December 1928 vol 223 cc2483-4W

asked the Under-Secretary of State for the Home Department, as representing the First Commissioner of Works, whether he is aware that the site of the premises in Pocock Street, Southwark, now in the occupation of the Stationery Office, is very suitable for the erection of workmen's dwellings; whether he has been approached by the London County Council in reference to this site; and whether, in view of the grave housing shortage in Central London he will endeavour to secure the termination of the occupation of these premises by the Stationery Office with a view to facilitating the use of the site for housing purposes?

that it has not, until recently, been the practice at the Port of Liverpool to make special examination for caseous lymphadenitis when inspecting consignments of imported mutton. An inquiry has already been made by one of the medical officers of my Department into the practices adopted at Liverpool and the other ports at which mutton is imported with the result that an uniform system of inspection at all these ports has now been established.
