HC Deb 23 December 1937 vol 330 c2167W
Mr. Groves

asked the Minister of Health how many cases have been sent to hospital in Darlington as diphtheria during the last three years; whether any of these cases were re-diagnosed as suffering from other diseases; if so, what were the amended diagnoses; in particular, how many of these cases were re-diagnosed as tonsilitis; and how many cases proved fatal in each classification?

Sir K. Wood

I am making inquiries from the local authority and will communicate with the hon. Member.
