HC Deb 30 June 1938 vol 337 cc2122-3
74. Mr. McGovern

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland whether any deaths resulting from vaccination have been recorded during the last 10 years; and whether there have been any deaths from smallpox in the same period?

Mr. Wedderburn

In 1927 there were two deaths from the effects of vaccination, in 1928 one, in 1930 one, and in 1931 one. Two deaths from smallpox occurred in 1930. No deaths from either cause occurred between 1931 and 1936, the latest year for which figures are available.

Mr. McGovern

Can the Minister say whether those who died from smallpox had been vaccinated?

Mr. Wedderburn

Not without notice.
