HC Deb 29 February 1944 vol 397 c1253W
Dr. Summerskill

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland whether his attention has been drawn to the resolution passed by the conference of local health authorities in Scotland, of which a copy has been sent to him, urging the Government to introduce legislation to provide for the compulsory notification and treatment of venereal disease; and what action he intends to take.

Mr. Johnston

Yes, Sir. I have also received a report from my Medical Advisory Committee whom I asked last year to consider certain aspects of the problem of the control and treatment of venereal diseases. That report will shortly be published as a Command Paper. I am not in a position to indicate what consequential steps will be taken.
