asked the Minister of Health what was the vaccinal condition of the man who died from smallpox in the s.s. "Multan" and of his wife who subsequently developed the disease; and whether the man was isolated in the ship when it was thought he was suffering from chickenpox.

My information is that both these persons were unvaccinated. The answer to the second part of the Question is "Yes."
