The Sanitary Inspector's duties arc very varied and include duties
relating to housing, prevention of the spread of infectious diseases
and supervision of the purity of water supplies.
The staff establishment is just sufficient to cover all requirements
provided there are no vacancies due to sickness or resignations.
However, there is a tendancy for additional duties to be added each
year and if this continues it may become necessary to reconsider this
establishment at some future date.
Although the number of cases of food poisoning reported during
the year was unusually large, it is satisfactory to be able to report
that not one of these cases was traced to a public restaurant or cafe.
