HC Deb 30 November 1939 vol 355 cc271-2W
Mr. Groves

asked the Minister of Health whether the smallpox cases infected by the Australian airman who died on arrival in England in March, 1938, were notified as cases of smallpox?

Mr. Elliot

Seven persons fell ill who had been in contact with this man. Only one of these cases was sufficiently distinctive to warrant a diagnosis and notification as smallpox.
