HC Deb 11 November 1943 vol 393 c1275
35. Mr. Messer

asked the Minister of Health whether any machinery has been erected to obtain statistics showing the incidence of tuberculosis among the nursing staffs of tuberculosis sanatoria separate from those in general hospitals in England and Wales; and, if so, whether figures will be given showing the death and case rate?

Mr. E. Brown

No such machinery has yet been established, but I share the desire of my hon. Friend to obtain reliable statistical information on the point to which he refers. I am consulting my Medical Advisory Committee and my Standing Advisory Committee on Tuberculosis as to the scope and form of the inquiries which ought to be made to attain the object.
