§ Mr. Parker
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland whether he will state the number of deaths from tuberculosis and the death rate based on number of residents in the mental hospitals of Scotland in 1943, giving figures for males and females separately: and the comparative figures for 1938, 1939, 1940, 1941 and 1942.
I regret that the figures for 1943 are not yet available; but I will send them to the hon. Member as soon as they are ready. Corresponding data for previous years were given in my answer to the hon. Member on 10th June, 1943 [OFFICIAL REPORT, col. 865].
