§ MR. J. W. LOGAN (Leicester, Harborough)
I beg to ask the President of the Local Government Board if it is the intention of the Government to take any steps towards carrying out the recommendations of the Royal Commission on Vaccination during the present Session; and, whether they will advise boards of 193 guardians to discontinue prosecutions for non-compliance with the Vaccination Acts until the Government are ready to deal with the subject?
§ THE SECRETARY TO THE LOCAL GOVERNMENT BOARD (Mr. T. W. RUSSELL,) Tyrone, S.
I can only state at present that the report of the Royal Commission on Vaccination is receiving the consideration of the Local Government Board. It is the duty of boards of guardians to enforce the existing law, and the report of the Royal Commission does not in any way relieve them of their duty in this matter.
