asked the Minister of Health whether the investigators whom he is sending into the areas where the rate of maternal mortality is abnormally high have started their investigations; and how soon some information will be available on the results of the investigations into the death rates in these particular areas?

Sir H. YOUNG:

The answer to the first part of the question is in the affirmative. As regards the second part, my hon. and gallant Friend will appreciate that these investigations are concerned with problems that are both difficult and complicated and will of necessity occupy some time. I am unable at present to say when the reports will be available.
