§ Mr. HANCOCK
asked the Minister of Health whether he can give the number of deaths from cancer in Great Britain and Ireland, and the percentage of population that died from this cause for each year since 1913?
§ Sir A. MOND
The number of deaths from cancer in England and Wales, Scotland and Ireland, and the percentage of the population that died from this cause in the years 1913–1920 are as follow:
in respect of the charges made by the Scottish Board of Agriculture for seed potatoes, manure, cutting down of trees, etc.; and whether he will cause inquiry to be made so that the dissatisfaction referred to may be set at rest?
§ Mr. MUNRO
One smallholder has complained to the Board of Agriculture for Scotland in respect of the prices charged by the Board for seeds and manures supplied by them to him. These prices were the current market rates. A moderate price was charged for a few trees which two smallholders cut down, and this was paid without complaint. I see no reason to take any action in the matter.
