§ Mr. Newens
asked the Minister of Health if he will make a statement on the recent outbreak of food poisoning in the Epping urban district and Epping and Ongar rural district.286W
§ Mr. K. Robinson
Investigations by the medical officer of health suggest that the illness was caused by eating bread made from a batch of flour contaminated in transit. The contamination was an isolated local occurrence; inquiries of other medical officers of health into whose areas batches of the same flour were delivered revealed no similar incidents.
