§ 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.
