HC Deb 05 July 1944 vol 401 cc1170-1W
Sir W. Smithers

asked the Minister of Health if, in view of the number of waiting cases, he will give the utmost publicity, by a series of broadcasts and by Press notices, as to the means which can be adopted in the home to combat tuberculosis.

Mr. Willink

General advice on preventive measures against tuberculosis is continuously given through newspapers, magazines and by broadcasting as part of general health education, and two films, "Defeat Tuberculosis" and "Mass Radiography," are now being shown. For individuals suffering from tuberculosis or who have been exposed to infection personal advice is available from their medical attendant or the local tuberculosis officer.
