39. Mr. Janner

asked the Minister of Health how many people in this country are suffering from leprosy at the present time; and how many new cases have been reported recently among immigrants from overseas.

Two hundred and seventy-nine. I regret that exact information as to the country of origin of persons suffering from leprosy is not available.
