No medical practitioner who has treated disease in this country, especially in its populous towns, can have failed to observe the insufficiency of our present legal enactments towards its prevention. Upon me this conviction has forced itself more urgently since July last, when I was entrusted by the Corporation with the carrying out of the provisions of the Sanitary Acts concerning this city. Having submitted my views to the Committee of the Corporation with whom I have the pleasure of acting, I was directed to draw out a statement of the differences which exist between Public Health Statutes in England and Ireland, and having done so, I was rejoiced to have been granted this opportunity of bringing the subject forward in this Society, where I enjoy the cooperation of its legal and other members expert in the construction of acts of Parliament. In order to exhibit at a glance the useful statutes from the benefits of which Ireland is excluded, and to systematize the discussion, I have set them forth with their most important provisions on this table.
