HC Deb 26 July 1897 vol 51 c1084

I beg to ask the President of the Local Government Board whether he has yet ascertained when the Evidence and Special Reports, on which the Final Reports of the Royal Commission on Vaccination is based, will be published; and what is the cause of the delay?


The Secretary to the Commission informed me on the 12th May that the whole of the as yet unpublished evidence referred to would be issued within three weeks of that time, and that the Special Reports would be issued at the same time, but some of them rather sooner than the evidence. I have since then twice written to him on the subject of the delay, and I have communicated to him the Question on the Paper to-day, asking for an explanation, but as yet T have had no reply. It is not a matter, however, in which I have any authority, and I am under the impression that communications should be addressed to the Home Office on this subject.

Forward to
