HC Deb 15 December 1953 vol 522 c31W
80. Major Anstruther-Gray

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if he will make a statement regarding the incidence of hard-pad in Scotland, comparing the present position with that of the previous two years.

Mr. J. Stuart

Hard-pad is not a notifiable disease and accordingly no statistics are available. My information is, however, that the disease is certainly not more prevalent now than it was two years ago.
