The Public Health Act 1918 had the full title 'An Act to further amend "The Public Health Act, 1903", and for other purposes' (Act no. 9 Geo. V no.9). This amendment includes regulations on the marriage of persons with Venereal Disease, pharmacists and the obligation of people with Venereal Diseases to undergo treatment or risk legal action being taken against them. This legislation was repealed in 1935 by The Public Health Act 1935 (Act no. 26 Geo V. No.43).
