HC Deb 10 July 1935 vol 304 cc337-8W

asked the Minister of Health whether he will give a return showing, in respect of the years 1922 to 1932, the average annual percentage of births vaccinated in each county; and the average annual small-pox case rate per thousand of the population in each county?


Small-pox case rates for each administrative county (including associated county boroughs) have been published for the years from 1922 to 1930, inclusive, in the Registrar-General's Statistical Review for those years (Part I, Table 28), to which I would refer the hon. Member. The publication of these rates was discontinued after 1930; but the numbers of cases are given in Table 29, and the corresponding populations will be found in Table 17 of the Review. It is regretted that percentages of births vaccinated are not available for administrative counties.
