HC Deb 26 June 1947 vol 439 cc77-8W
29. Mr. Sorensen

asked the Minister of Health when Defence Regulation 33B is likely to lapse; what number of those examined under the Regulation under one and two notifications and for men and women, respectively, were found to be infected; and whether he has instructed health visitors to trace vaguely-described persons notified anonymously under the Regulation.

Mr. Bevan

The regulation is due to expire at the end of this year. I regret

number fiend, imprisoned, bound over and placed on probation, respectively.

Mr. Ede

The answer is as follows:

that the information asked for in the second part of the Question is not available. With regard to the third part, it is the responsibility of local authorities through the health visitors or otherwise to prevent the spread of infection by using any information available to trace suspected contacts.
