§ 23. Mr. Russell
asked the Minister of Health to what extent the Registrar-General obtains from persons registering deaths all the information he is entitled to ask for under the Population (Statistics) Act, 1938.
§ Mr. Marquand
All the questions authorised by the Act are asked and the information is readily given by the persons registering deaths except when, as happens on occasion, the answer to a question is not within their knowledge. The object of the Act is being achieved.
§ Mr. Russell
Would the right hon. Gentleman consider having the questions put to the persons registering included in the death certificate, so that they have advance knowledge of them?
