Occupier of stables,
I would draw your attention to the By-laws made by the London
County Council and Poplar Borough Council referring to Stables,
Horse Manure, etc., extracts of which are enclosed.
Horse manure being the chief breeding ground of the ordinary
house-fly in this country, and as flies play such an important part in
the spread of many diseases, particularly infantile diarrhoea, it is
important that strict attention be paid to the regular and complete
removal of manure if the health of the community is to be safeguarded.
The manure must be removed completely at least once in every seven
days, and it cannot be stated that manure has been completely
removed until the receptacle has been cleaned or swept out, leaving
no remains on the floor or walls.
W. ALLAN YOUNG,
Medical Officer of Health.
