HC Deb 23 June 1967 vol 748 c365W
Mr. Pavitt

asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government if he will establish a section within his Department on environmental health comparable in function to the similar division of the National Institute of Health, Washington, details of which have been sent to him.

Mr. MacColl

I have studied with interest the material which my hon. Friend has supplied. I think that the Department is suitably organised already to discharge my right hon. Friend's responsibilities in the field of environmental health, with help and advice from the other Departments concerned with health matters, from Government research organisations, and from the Clean Air Council. But he will gladly consider any further suggestions which my hon. Friend cares to send him.
