asked the Minister of Health whether he has now received and co-ordinated the first quarterly reports on Defence Regulation 33B; how many times this regulation has been applied; and with what effect on the incidence of venereal disease in the respective districts?

Steps have been taken to expedite the reports mentioned in the reply which I gave to my hon. Friend on Thursday last but I am not yet in a position to make any further statement.

asked the Minister of Health whether his Department has statistical information comparing the figures of venereal disease notifications in United States cities where certificates of good health are required from persons applying for marriage licences, with those cities in the United States of America where such legal requirements are unnecessary and with notifications in comparable British cities for both pre-war and post-war years?

asked the Minister of Health whether he can give the statistics for venereal disease notifications for Great Britain for the war years 1940, 1941 and 1942, with comparative figures for Sweden and Russia, and for all the large United States cities?

No, Sir; the necessary statistics regarding the incidence of venereal disease abroad during the years mentioned are not available.
