§ Major OWEN
asked the Minister of Health whether his attention has been drawn to the prevalence of tuberculosis in the Gwyrfai rural district area; and what steps are being taken to deal with this scourge?
§ Mr. SHAKESPEARE
Yes, Sir. My right hon. Friend has received copies of the recent report made by a medical officer of the Welsh National Memorial Association on the subject of the incidence of tuberculosis in this district and certain other parts of North Wales. My right hon. Friend understands that a conference of representatives of the association and of local authorities concerned was held on 11th November, when it resolved that the county councils represented at the conference should be requested to give immediate consideration to the report, and the association undertook to carry out a number of preventive and educational measures.
