HC Deb 21 July 1959 vol 609 cc1066-7
55. Mr. Rankin

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland how many persons in Scotland are known to be suffering from migraine.

Mr. J. N. Browne

I regret that this information is not available.

Mr. Rankin

Why is it that we are authoritatively told that in England there are three million sufferers from this disease, while we cannot have the figures for Scotland? Is it the case that the Scottish Health Department is more inefficient than the English?

Mr. Browne

According to my information, there are no authoritative figures.
