§ 33. Mr. Hector Hughes
asked the Minister of Health if he is aware of the dangers threatening the British people by the disease known as Asiatic flu, and that a new type of respirator, details of which have been sent to him, has been designed to protect the wearer from germs; and what steps he is taking to make this type of respirator available to the British public.
§ Mr. Vaughan-Morgan
There is still no evidence of any material spread of influenza in this country. I am making further inquiries about the respirator but it hardly seems to be a practicable method of protection for general use.
