HC Deb 31 July 1941 vol 373 cc1560-1W
Mr. J. Griffiths

asked the Minister of Health whether, having regard to the experience of the last war, when the incidence of tuberculosis among women increased with the entry of large numbers of women workers into industry, he will indicate what measures are being taken to prevent such an increase in this war?

Mr. E. Brown

The prevention of tuberculosis depends on a number of factors such as the conditions of housing and the adequacy of diet, coupled with the segregation of infective cases. These services have been much developed since the last war and the importance of maintaining them to the fullest possible extent so far as war-time conditions permit is fully recognised.
