HC Deb 09 July 1919 vol 117 cc1846-7W

asked the Minister of Health whether he has investigated the circumstances attending the deaths of three men within ten days after treatment for venereal disease at the Royal Infirmary, Hull; what was the drug used; whether it had the approval of his Department; and whether he can supply any information on these cases?


Yes, Sir; the three cases occurred in May, and my Department instituted inquiry forthwith. No drug was used, the deaths in each case following on examination only. Fuller investigation is proceeding, and a Report will be received in due course.
