HC Deb 22 April 1948 vol 449 c164W
92. Mr. F. Noel-Baker

asked the Minister of Health what action he has taken to associate the medical profession in the United Kingdom with the work of the World Health Organisation; and to bring to the notice of the general public its achievements in campaigns against venereal disease, tuberculosis, malaria and pestilential diseases.

Mr. Bevan

The Organisation's first meeting has not yet been held. But I associate myself with the general objects to which my hon. Friend refers, and shall not overlook them.

94. Mr. F. Noel-Baker

asked the Minister of Health whether His Majesty's Government has issued any invitation to the World Health Organisation to hold the World Health Assembly in London in 1949.

Mr. Bevan

The first meeting of the World Health Organisation, which I had hoped might be held in London, has now been arranged for Geneva in June. I shall consider whether at that meeting it would be possible to offer accommodation in London for the 1949 Assembly.
