HC Deb 20 November 1947 vol 444 c211W
Mr. Viant

asked the Minister of Health how many children were immunised against diphtheria during 1946 in the age classes 0–5, 6–10, and 11 to 14.

Mr. Bevan

I can only give figures for the two age-groups of under five and between five and 14. In 1946, in England and Wales, there were about 491,000 and 161,000 respectively.
