HC Deb 06 March 1961 vol 636 c1W
21. Mr. Skeffington

asked the Minister of Health whether he will make it compulsory for all staff in the National Health Service exposed to the special risk of contracting tuberculosis to be given a tuberculin test and chest X-ray every year.

Mr. Powell

No. They should be tuberculin-tested and X-rayed on entry and offered annual X-ray; but annual tuberculin-testing is unnecessary.
