HC Deb 02 May 1950 vol 474 cc186-7W
Mr. Viant

asked the Minister of Health whether inquests were held in connection with the three deaths from post-vaccinal encephalitis which took place during the year 1948 as reported in the report of the chief medical officer of health recently published, or why not.

Mr. Bevan

An inquest was held on one of these deaths and another was referred to the coroner, who considered, after a post-mortem had been held, that an inquest was unnecessary. Deaths from this cause need not be referred to the coroner unless they present special features.
