HC Deb 05 February 1929 vol 224 c1607W

asked the Minister for Health if he can give the figures at the end of five-year periods, beginning with 1900, of the annual deaths of mothers from puerperal fever in Great Britain, Germany, Sweden and France?


The most recent figures available showing the rates of mortality from puerperal sepsis in England and Wales for a series of five-yearly periods will be found in Table LV of the Text Volume of the Registrar-General's Statistical Review for 1926. With regard to the figures for Scotland, the hon. Member should address an inquiry to the Secretary of State for Scotland. With regard to the other countries mentioned, I am advised that the published information available is not such as to enable a comparable statement to be furnished.
