HC Deb 08 April 1941 vol 370 cc1435-6W
Mr. Viant

asked the Minister of Health how many deaths from smallpox were registered in 1939, and how many in 1940; and how many cases of that disease were registered in those two years, with the ages of each case.

Mr. E. Brown

There were no deaths from smallpox in the years 1939 and 1940. The number of cases notified was one in each year. I understand that the case notified in 1939 was that of a man aged 29, and the other case that of a woman of about 35.
