HC Deb 08 February 1951 vol 483 c240W
123. Sir W. Smithers

asked the Minister of Health what opinion his medical advisers have formed regarding the reduction in the meat ration, by reducing resistance to disease, being a contributory cause of the influenza epidemic, as indicated by Dr. Frederick Haigh of Essex and Dr. Nevil Leyton of Harley Street, particulars of which have been sent to him.

Mr. Marquand

I am advised that there is no evidence whatever of any connection between these two matters.
