HC Deb 05 May 1927 vol 205 cc1781-2W
Colonel DAY

asked the Minister of Health the total number of small-pox cases that have been reported from Hendon and Golders Green to date in the recent outbreak; the number of deaths resulting; and what, if any, special precautions have been taken to prevent any further cases occurring?


Eight cases have occurred in the Hendon Urban District, which includes Golders Green, and four deaths have resulted. As soon as the nature of the disease was determined, all the usual preventive measures were adopted by the local authority, and a medical officer of my Department has rendered assistance.
