HC Deb 08 February 1951 vol 483 cc239-40W
122. Mr. Teeling

asked the Minister of Health if he will give instructions to all medical officers of health that they shall release no information about dangerous infectious diseases without his approval.

Mr. Marquand

No. I think that the publication of information about local health conditions is very properly a matter for the local authority and not one in which I should normally intervene.
