HC Deb 02 March 1909 vol 1 cc1386-7W

asked the President of the Local Government Board if he can state under their separate headings the number of infectious diseases that it is compulsory to notify that were notified in England and Wales during 1908, with the number of deaths that occurred from each disease?


The information obtained by the Local Government Board on this subject relates to London and 256 boroughs and urban districts in England and Wales. Particulars with respect to the year 1908 are being collected, but the Returns are not at present complete. The information obtained as regards the year 1907 is summarised at page xcii. of the last Annual Report of the Board, a copy of which I will send to my hon. Friend.
