GENERAL DISEASES.-Statistics are given of information collected on UNDULANT FEVER. An investigation was in progress to explain why, if raw milk is accepted as the source of infection, many drinkers of infected milk escape this disease. PSITTACOSIS was diagnosed in seven birds from Australia. The CANCER problem is discussed. MILK HYGIENE.-From January 1st, 1937, Local Authorities became the licensing authorities under the Milk (Special Designations) Order, 1936. Differences in administration found are the subject of comment and suggestions for improvement are given. The need for strict control and supervision of pasteurizing plants is stressed. Recent research suggests that milk-borne streptococcal epidemics may be due to milk from cows infected with Str. pyogenes in addition to direct infection of milk by persons engaged in its handling and distribution. TUBERCULOSIS.-The incidence of human pulmonary TB. due to bovine tubercle bacilli is considered, and a table given summarizing the recent position in Great Britain. MEAT INSPECTION AND FOOD POISONING.-The number of food poisoning outbreaks reported to the department was 94, as compared with 82 in 1936; 77 were investigated at the Ministry's laboratory. There were 45 cases of SALMONELLA INFECTION as the cause of acute CASTRO-ENTERITIS. Duck eggs were responsible in three and pig flesh was suspected in ten outbreaks due to SALMONELLA INFECTION. Reference is made to the effect of the Livestock Industry Act, 1937, on the future of meat inspection. The Livestock Commission is empowered to set up three experimental central abattoirs, the ultimate aim being their general establishment. The Ministry's Laboratory issued 60Q ml. of antirabic vaccine.
