§ 14. Mr. Clunie
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if he will give the incidence rates of tuberculosis in Scotland for the years 1947–48–49 and indicate the tendency of this disease.
§ Miss Herbison
With permission, I will circulate in the OFFICIAL REPORT the figures for which the hon. Member asks. Notifications of respiratory tuberculosis have been rising since 1939, but I expect the total for 1950 to show a slight fall. Notifications of non-respiratory tuberculosis have been falling since 1944.
§ Following are the figures:
|TUBERCULOSIS NOTIFICATIONS IN SCOTLAND|
|PER 100,000 POPULATION|
