§ Miss Wilkinson
asked the Minister of Health if he will cause inquiry to be made into the case of Alfred Frampton, aged 15 years, whose parents reside at 81, Albert Road, Jarrow, who was knocked down by a private motor car on 26th October, 1937, and taken to Mayday Hospital, Thornton Heath, and contracted typhoid while at Mayday, being then transferred to the borough council hospital at Croydon, where he died on 20th January, 1938; and whether this transfer occurred during the typhoid inquiry?
§ Sir K. Wood
I much regret to learn of this unfortunate case. I have communicated with the town council on the matter and I will send the hon. Member the particulars I have received.
