§ Mr. R. YOUNG
asked the Minister of Health whether he has investigated the 1847W 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?
§ Dr. ADDISON
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.
