HC Deb 03 February 1965 vol 705 cc288-9W
56. Mr. Hector Hughes

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if he is aware that the Milne Report on the typhoid epidemic in Aberdeen exceeded its terms of reference by criticising the national Press, television and radio on the ground that they exaggerated the danger and produced unfortunate results notwithstanding that the epidemic was quickly and effectively ended by Dr. Ian MacQueen, the Aberdeen Medical Officer of Health; and if he will take steps to correct this mis-statement.

Mr. Ross

The Milne Report does not express, nor does it appear to imply, any criticism of the national Press, television or radio, and no correction seems necessary.
