HC Deb 01 June 1938 vol 336 c2062W
Mr. Liddall

asked the Minister of Health what epidemics of infectious disease have been attributed to spread by milk during the five years 1933–37 in England and Wales; how many cases were involved and how many deaths resulted; and what steps he has taken to prevent a recurrence of such milk-borne outbreaks?

Mr. Bernays

Following is the answer to the first and second parts of the question:

Monmouth Rural District Council proposes to appoint a junior male clerk who will be unpaid for a probationary period of six months; that this condition not only limits the field of choice but is unfair to possible applicants whose economic circumstances are unfavourable; and whether he will take steps to ensure that the district council will pay appropriate remuneration during the probationary period?

Mr. Elliot

My attention has not previously been called to this matter, but I have no authority to intervene in the manner suggested.
