HC Deb 07 March 1887 vol 311 cc1393-4
MR. PICTON (Leicester)

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Depart- ment, Whether his attention has been called to the case of Mr. Robert King, of Mere Road, Evington, who in February this year was ordered, under a threat of distraint, to pay a fine inflicted in February 1886, on account of the non-vaccination of an infant which died in May; and, whether, under the exceptional circumstances, he will take means to relieve the bereaved father of the penalty inflicted for a dead child?


I have received no application for the remission, of the fine in question; but if I do, the circumstances will be most carefully considered.
