From: J Thurston

Dear Accident Compensation Corporation,

I would like to request information on the costs of mumps and measles cases, including, if known, any impacts n quality-life-adjusted years. I would also like to request the number of fatalities due to measles or mumps per year since 2008/09.

If you do not hold this information, please pass it on to the relevant agency who does.

Yours faithfully,

J Thurston
