HC Deb 07 August 1941 vol 373 cc2147-8W
Mr. B. Taylor

asked the President of the Board of Education how many nursery classes there are in England and Wales; and with how many nursery helpers between the age of 14 and 18? tuberculosis cases in England and Wales, respectively, for each quarter since the beginning of 1938 and up to date?

Mr. E. Brown

Quarterly statistics are not available, but the following table indicates the total numbers of new cases notified to local authorities, or which came to notice otherwise than by formal notification, during each of the three years 1938 to 1940

Mr. Butler

I regret that the information required is not readily available, since under war conditions the collection of statistics has been reduced to a minimum.
