§ 49. Mr. THORNE
asked the Minister of Health whether he has received a report from the Department's inspector in the Nottingham area relative to the death of a patient and the serious illness of other patients at Nottingham City Mental Hospital caused by food poisoning; and, if so, whether it is his intention to cause an inquiry into the circumstances?
Sir H. YOUNG
The Board of Control have received a report from the medical superintendent of the mental hospital, and a Medical Commissioner of the Board is now investigating the matter at the hospital.
§ Mr. THORNE
Is the right hon. Gentleman not aware that it was a German import that caused the death in one case and illness of these people?
