HC Deb 08 July 1957 vol 573 cc7-8W
61. Mr. Awbery

asked the Minister of Health when he anticipates that the production of British vaccine against poliomyelitis will meet the demands in this country; how many children under ten years of age have been treated; how many are waiting for treatment; and if he will lift the embargo on the importation of poliomyelitis vaccine until immediate needs are satisfied.

Mr. Vaughan-Morgan

There is as yet nothing to add to my right hon. Friend's statement of 15th May except that vaccine has now been issued for a total of over a million children.
