have also been re-drained, and others, particularly on the Terrace, need
re-draining and the same test applied. The flushing of drains was continued
as last year, and, in addition, disinfectants were mixed with the water during
the outbreak of diphtheria.
The newly-erected mortuary has given great satisfaction, and the Coroner
for West Middlesex pronounced it as one of the best in his district.
I have again to draw the Council's attention that no provision is made for
the isolation of infectious diseases in the district.
