§ Mr. J. Harvey
asked the Minister of Health what steps his Department is taking to re-emphasise the importance of personal hygiene in combating infection.
§ Mr. Barber
As in previous years, advice on the importance of personal hygiene, particularly in relation to the handling of food, has been given in notes issued to the Press and producers of radio and television programmes. The attention of local authorities is being drawn to the posters and other publicity material which are available to them free of charge. Television fillers on food hygiene are already available to the British Broadcasting Corporation and Independent Television Companies and they are being urged to show them as frequently as possible.
