§ MR. F. A. CHANNING (Northampton, E.)
I beg to ask the President of the Local Government Board (1) whether Inquiries have been made by the Royal Commission on Vaccination into outbreaks of small-pox at Warrington, Leicester, and other places; (2) when the results of those Inquiries will be made public; and (3) what opportunity will be given to those who have taken local interest in the matter to represent any observations thereon to the Royal Commission before it presents its final Report?
§ THE PRESIDENT OF THE LOCAL GOVERNMENT BOARD (Mr. HENRY CHAPLIN,) Lincolnshire, Sleaford
I have made inquiry, and am informed that it is the fact that Inquiries have been made by the Commission into outbreaks of small-pox at Warrington, Leicester, and other places. The Commission, however, cannot undertake to delay their final Report until after the publication of the results of these Inquiries.
§ MR. CHANNING
Will the right hon. Gentleman give me a reply to the third paragraph of the Question?
§ MR. CHAPLIN
In reply to that, I think it is a question which ought to be addressed to the Commission itself. I have no authority to interfere.
