HC Deb 14 December 1950 vol 482 c198W
81. Mr. Watkinson

asked the Minister of Health if he will take steps to empower local authorities to secure the isolation from their employment of persons handling foodstuffs who are suspected of being carriers of infectious disease.

Mr. Bevan

Medical officers of health already have such powers as regards suspected carriers of enteric and dysentery. The subject will receive such further consideration as the conclusions of two working parties, set up by my right hon. Friend the Minister of Food, may show to be desirable.
