HC Deb 02 July 1923 vol 166 c43

asked the Minister of Health what is the ascertained number of cases of tuberculosis for Wales and England, respectively; and what is the amount of accommodation for such cases in public sanatoria, respectively?


I am sending the hon. Member particulars as to the numbers of notifications of, and deaths from, tuberculosis during the last five years in England and Wales. As regards the second part of the question, the residential institutions in England approved by my Department for the treatment of tuberculosis contain about 19,730 beds, and those in Wales about 1,315.
