HC Deb 02 July 1962 vol 662 c7W
58. Mr. H. Hynd

asked the Minister of Health what is the incidence of infectious diseases among immigrants already in this country; and what is being done in connection with health matters about the problem of those living in overcrowded conditions.

Miss Pitt

I regret that information about incidence is not available. The powers of local authorities to deal with living conditions in houses in multiple occupation have been greatly strengthened by the Housing Act, 1961.
