HC Deb 09 March 1950 vol 472 cc3-4W
35. Mr. Russell

asked the Minister of Health what steps he proposes to deal with the situation described in the Survey of Sickness Prevalence published in the Monthly Bulletin of the Ministry of Health, which has revealed that the health of the people, especially those of working age, was poorer in the first six months of 1949 than a year previously.

Mr. Bevan

The situation was mainly due to the influenza epidemic in 1949.
