§ MR. HENRY ALLEN
asked the President of the Local Government Board, Whether, in view of the increase of Small Pox in the Metropolis, he will furnish the latest statistics of its comparative incidence on vaccinated and un-vaccinated persons?
§ MR. DODSON
Sir, the Registrar General's Returns show, as far as practicable, the actual number of deaths from small-pox among vaccinated and unvaccinated persons in the Metropolis. These Returns are issued every week, and include only persons who have died; but I have no means of ascertaining the exact number of cases of small-pox which occur among persons who recover, except as regards the patients in the Metropolitan hospitals; and I will endeavour to lay these statistics on the Table of the House at an early period.
