HC Deb 15 April 1948 vol 449 c87W
73. Mr. Lipson

asked the Minister of Health if he will postpone the transfer to county councils of medical officers of health and their staffs and offices from the new most purposes county boroughs recommended by the Boundary Commission until a decision has been made with regard to implementing this part of their report.

Mr. Bevan

Any transfers of staff and premises essential to transferred functions under present legislation must be made if county councils are to carry out the duties Parliament has given them from the appointed day.
