Sanitary Inspectors in Conference. On Saturday the members of the North Wes- tern and Midland Sanitary Inspectors' Association met at Manchester. Among those present was Mr R J Hughes, Sanitary Inspector, Rhyl. Speaking to the toast of the Manchester Corpora- I tion, Alderman Wallon Smith referred to the im- 1 portance of suitable sites being obtained upon which to erect houses. He said that when a house was built it had to be certified as fit for human habitation, and he would go a step further and say that the land sold for building upon should be certified to be fit for the purpose. If all the sites that had been sold for building on were inspected, it would be found that many were very unfit for habitation. It should be made illegal to sell land unless it were fit for the purpose, just as a grocer was liable to prosecution who sold food that was unfit. He knew that houses were apt to suffer fer many years after they were erected where the substratum had been of an offensive character. The surface ought to be sealed with concrete, or I the substratum removed.
