The hoase com mittee investigated the matter, and; the report was favorable to the mat ron's ideas. The comm.ittee decided to refer the points raised to the Board of Health, the main one being whether it was necessary that a trained nurse, not a probationer,, should be placed in charge of isolated, cases. The board replied that the matter was one for the committee to decide. At a meeting later on, both.- „ medical officers tendered their resign ations which were accepted. It was decided to advertise for a medical officer for the hospital at a salary of £104 per annum.
