HC Deb 04 July 1944 vol 401 cc1003-4W
Sir W. Smithers

asked the Minister of Health the number of cases suffering from tuberculosis waiting for institutional treatment in the country; and separate figures for Kent.

Captain McEwen

I have been asked to reply. At 31st March, 1944, the latest date for which figures are available, the number of tuberculous cases in England and Wales who had been awaiting institutional treatment provided by Tuberculosis Authorities for a period of more than ten days was 3,960. The figure for Kent at the same date was 236 cases.
