THE Minister of Health has issued an Order, Public Health (Shell-fish) Regulations, 1934, revoking previous regulations, and regulating the sale of shellfish for human consumption, which came into operation on January 1. The new regulations give powers to local authorities to investigate suspected layings, to prohibit the sale of shellfish from polluted layings, and to provide cleansing apparatus if considered necessary (Statutory Rules and Orders, 1934, No. 1342. 2d. Circular 1446. 1d. H.M. Stationery Office).
