§ 78. Mr. H. Nicholls
asked the Minister of Health to give an estimate of the reasons for the tuberculosis death rate in Walsall being much in excess of the country average.
§ Mr. Iain Macleod
I do not think the difference reflects problems peculiar to Walsall. From 1949 to 1951, the annual tuberculosis death rates for Walsall declined more than for England and Wales as a whole, and were not significantly different from those for a number of other comparable county boroughs.
