asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether he will give details of the incidence of, and the death rate from, tuberculosis in Berlin; and what reports he has received on the outbreak of pellagra due to nutritional shortage in the U.S. zone of Germany.

The average monthly number of cases of all forms of tuberculosis reported in the first quarter of 1947 was 1,696; deaths in this period averaged 696 monthly. I have no information about any outbreak of pellagra in the United States zone of Germany.
