Haverfordwest District Council…


Haverfordwest District Council — and Medical Officer. For nine years the Haverfordwest District Council have contended with the Local Government Board in respect to the appoint- ment of medical officer. There was another long discussion at W ed- nesday's meeting of the Haverfordwest Rural District Council on the appointment of a medical officer. A reply was received from the Local Government Board declining to sanction the appointment of a medical officer for the Haverfordwest district at a salary of £150, and pressing on the Council the advantages of joining with Narberth, and appointing a man for the combined area at [300. In another communication the Board said they saw no objection to the new medical officer of health being appointed vaccination officer, but in such a case he should receive a salary of not less than [600, and a condition of the appointment should be the possession of a motor car. Mr Reynolds (Treglemais), held that the Council would be cutting their own throats if they insisted on anyone having a motor-car. They should encourage the breeding of horses, and be satisfied if the medical officer of health was provided with his own steed. The Rev J J Evans said the Council had been fighting the Local Government Board Ion this question since 1898. The Local Government Board had always carried the day, and they would do so on this question. Mr Lewis (Wiston), refused to be dictated to by the Local Government Board. Eventually it was decided to ask the Local Government Board if they would consent to a medical officer of health being appointed for the Haverfordwest district only, provided he were also apointed vaccination officer.
