HC Deb 17 November 1930 vol 245 c64W
Lieut.-Colonel HENEAGE

asked the Secretary of State for War the average number of cases of cerebral meningitis among the troops in Great Britain during the past two years compared with the average of civilian population?


I understand that cerebral meningitis is not a notifiable disease, and that statistics are not available so far as the civil poulation is concerned. The following statement gives the figures for the troops in Great Britain, also figures relating to cerebrospinal fever amongst the troops in Great Britain and such figures as I have been able to obtain for the civil population.
