asked the Minister of Health for how long the Royal Air Force officer who took smallpox to Brighton was ill before he was taken to the smallpox isolation hospital on 28th December; and how long was he in the Dartford Isolation Hospital.

My information is that the officer suffered from illness not then diagnosed as smallpox from 29th November to 11th December. He consented to go to hospital for clinical study on 28th December and left on 5th January.
