HC Deb 06 February 1941 vol 368 c1103W
Mr. Leach

asked the Minister of Health whether he is aware of the death of Christine Thorpe, aged seven months, of 17, Garden Road, Hemingfield, West Riding of Yorkshire, of inflammation of the brain, nine clays after vaccination; whether the development in this case was similar to many of the cases of post-vaccinal encephalitis investigated by the Andrewes and Rolleston Committees on Vaccination; and why was any association between vaccination and the child's death denied?

Mr. M. MacDonald

I am not yet in possession of details of the case referred to, but I will communicate with the hon. Member when my inquiries are complete.
