§ 62. Mr. Hector Hughes
asked the Minister of Health if he will state the number, nature, place, and duration, of the epidemics which have occurred in Great Britain during the last 10 years: and what amounts of compensation were awarded to persons and businesses who were injured or damaged thereby.
§ Mr. Barber
Detailed records of all major outbreaks of disease are not available but there is much information in the Annual Reports of my Chief Medical Officer and those of the Scottish Home and Health Department.
Information is not available centrally of any amounts which may have been paid by way of compensation by local authorities.
