§ Dr. O'DONOVAN
asked the Minister of Health whether he is aware that the last appointment of a medical officer for the Accrington No. 2 district was not made in accordance with Section 160 of the Public Assistance Order, 1930, which governs the residential qualifications of the district medical officer appointed; and why this was done?
§ Sir K. WOOD
No, Sir. Article 160 of the Public Assistance Order, 1930, empowers the county council in any particular case to depart for special reasons from the requirement that a district medical officer shall reside within the district assigned to him.
