HC Deb 09 March 1949 vol 462 c1174
59. Dr. Segal

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies what was the incidence of new cases of leprosy in Nigeria during each of the last three years.

Mr. Creech Jones

I am asking the Governor how far this information is available, and will communicate with my hon. Friend when his reply is received.

Mr. Sorensen

Can my right hon. Friend say whether all cases of leprosy have to be registered, or whether that is permissive?

Mr. Creech Jones

I should want notice of that question.
