HC Deb 06 May 1924 vol 173 cc249-50W

asked the Minister of Health whether in cases where notification of an outbreak of small-pox has occurred any special report as to the sanitary conditions of the property or neighbourhood is made to his Department?


No such special reports are made to my Department as a matter of routine, but when an outbreak of small-pox is investigated by one of my medical officers he reports as to all the circumstances affecting the outbreak. I may also refer my hon. Friend to the answer which I gave to my hon. Friend the Member for the North-Eastern Division of Derbyshire (Mr. Lee) on the 16th March last.
