§ Mr. Naylor
asked the Minister of Health whether, in view of the increase in cases of scabies among both children 911W and adults in the Metropolitan area, he will make a statement on the present position and circularise local authorities on the best means of arresting the further spreading of this complaint?
§ Mr. E. Brown
Local authorities throughout the country have lately been given new powers to enable them to combat the disease more effectively. I am sending my hon. Friend a copy of the circular that I have recently issued to local authorities on the subject.
