§ 85. Mr. Walker-Smith
asked the Minister of Health whether he is satisfied that the numbers and recruitment of 140W sanitary inspectors are sufficient, in view of the added responsibilities imposed on them by recent legislation; and what action is contemplated to ensure a sufficient supply.
§ Mr. Iain Macleod
The extent to which measures now before Parliament might add to the existing duties of sanitary inspectors is doubtful. I know, however, that recruitment presents difficulties and I hope to make a statement shortly on the recommendations of the working party on the recruitment, training and qualifications of sanitary inspectors for dealing with this and associated matters.
