§ MR. CHANNING (Northamptonshire, E.)
I beg to ask the President of the Local Government Board whether he can state what steps will be taken to give effect to the recommendations of the Royal Commission on Tuberculosis, so far as those recommendations relate to the Local Government Board, and especially as to the more effectual prevention of the use of diseased cows for dairy purposes?
§ THE PRESIDENT OF THE LOCAL GOVERNMENT BOARD (Mr. H. CHAPLIN,) Lincolnshire, Sleaford
This Question was down for Friday, and I am sorry I was not in my place to answer it. The Report was only issued on the previous Tuesday, and the first opportunity I had of seeing it was on Wednesday. Obviously there has not been time to arrive at decisions on the numerous important recommendations which are made. I desire also some opportunity of seeing the evidence, which has not yet been published.
§ MR. CHANNING
Considering the extreme urgency and gravity of this Question, will the right honourable Gentleman at once, and without delay, consider the Report especially as to obtaining further powers for the Local Government Board over local authorities?
