HC Deb 15 June 1927 vol 207 cc1002-3
41. Sir R. THOMAS

asked the Minister of Health what are the returns of deaths from tuberculosis in North Wales for the years 1919 and 1926; and whether the statistics show an increase or a decrease upon the figures for the corresponding period before the War?


With the hon. Member's permission, I will circulate the figures in the OFFICIAL REPORT. The figures show a considerable diminution in the death-rate from tuberculosis in each of the six counties in North Wales since 1911.

Following are the figures:

The death-rate from tuberculosis in each administrative county and county borough appears in the Registrar-General's Annual Reports and Statistical Review, Part I, for the years 1911–1925.

The death-rates per million living for 1911, 1919 and 1926 in the six counties in North Wales are as follows:

—— 1926. 1919. 1911.
Anglesey 1,448 1,681 1,787
Carnarvonshire 1,661 2,155 2,216
Denbighshire 779 1,206 1,509
Flintshire 723 1,052 1,387
Merionethshire 1,494 1,910 2,089
Montgomershire 979 1,394 1,318
