§ 50. Mr. PETHICK-LAWRENCE
asked the Minister of Health the percentage of children vaccinated during the last five years in the counties of Bedfordshire, Gloucestershire and Leicestershire, and the percentage for the country as a whole; and what has been the aggregate number of cases of small-pox, and deaths arising therefrom, per 10,000 of the population in these three counties during the same period, and the corresponding number for the country as a whole?

As regards the five years 1922–26 inclusive, the information desired can best be shown by means of a tabular statement which has been compiled from the Registrar-General's returns and which, with the hon. Member's permission, I will circulate in the OFFICIAL REPORT.
