Hon. John C. Munro (Minister of National Health and Welfare):
I would advise that we have not had very many cases of this particular disease in Canada. So far only about 100 cases have been reported, and they have been relatively mild. Since the summer the food and drug directorate have been doing everything possible with United States and Canadian companies to urge the manufacturer of this particular antitoxin. We hope we will have a supply in Canada by mid January.
