HC Deb 22 July 1957 vol 574 c26
56. Mr. Beswick

asked the Minister of Health whether the case of suspected smallpox in Barnes has yet been investigated; what conclusions have been reached; and if he will state the circumstances in which this disease was contracted.

Mr. Vaughan-Morgan

Investigations in this case did not confirm a diagnosis of smallpox; the person concerned suffered from a non-infectious skin condition.
