asked the Minister of Health what purpose is served by Health Control Form No. 2, which requires those entering the United Kingdoms to state where they spent each of the previous 14 nights; and whether he will now withdraw this form.

I am sending the hon. Member the form now in use, which is not quite as he describes it. Without delaying the passengers it shows whether they have recently been in an infected area and enables any necessary measures to be taken. I cannot withdraw the form so long as the International Sanitary Conventions require it to be used.
