§ Colonel ROPNER
asked the Minister of Health whether arrangements have now been made for the transfer to local authorities of the poster frames which were formerly used in connection with the work of the Empire Marketing Board?
Sir H. YOUNG
I would refer my hon. Friend to the answer given on this subject to the hon. Member for Reading (Dr. Howitt) on 30th November last. I am glad to say that more than 750 of these frames, out of a total of 980 which had been erected on sites owned by local authorities, have now been taken over by the authorities for use primarily for purposes of health propaganda.
