HC Deb 23 November 1926 vol 200 cc209-10

asked the Minister of Health whether the two cases of smallpox recently imported from Paris were vaccinated; how long these persons were receiving medical treatment in London before it was discovered they were suffering from small-pox; and will he state whether any explanation can be given for delay in diagnosing the disease?


My right hon. Friend is not sure as to the cases which the hon. Member has in mind. So far as my right hon. Friend is aware, no persons actually suffering from small-pox have arrived recently in this country from Paris, but if the hon. Member will give further particulars of the cases to which he refers, my right hon. Friend will be happy to give such information as is available.
