Mr. F. A. Philbrook (Halton):
Mr. Speaker, my question is for the Minister of National Health and Welfare. It concerns the recent recall in the United States of a large amount of a common child vaccine, D.P.T., after the death of four babies to whom it had been administered shortly before. These deaths are not necessarily related to the vaccine.
I would ask whether the minister has been in touch with her officials and the United States administration in respect of this matter, and is any action indicated?
