HC Deb 31 March 1898 vol 55 c1476
MR. J. W. CROMBIE (Kincardineshire)

I beg to ask the Lord Advocate whether glycerinated calf lymph is generally used by public vaccinators in Scotland; and whether, as he does not contemplate any alteration of the law at present, he can take other means to enforce its uses?


I am informed by the Local Government Board for Scotland that they have no means of ascertaining exactly the quantity of glycerinated calf lymph used by public vaccinators in Scotland. But as I have already stated in reply to a Question put to me by the hon. Member for the West Division of Aberdeenshire, the provision of a supply of glycerinated calf lymph to Scotland will be considered in connection with the arrangements which, I understand, are now being considered by the English Local Government Board.
