HC Deb 10 December 1945 vol 417 cc171-2W
Mr. Viant

asked the Under-Secretary of State for India whether the statement on page 120 of the Report of the Bengal Commission that during the months January to June, 1944, the number of deaths from smallpox was 126,471 is correct.

Mr. A. Henderson

I am inquiring from what source the Bengal Famine Inquiry Commission derived their figure of 125,471 and whether it remains the latest available.
