HC Deb 28 March 1899 vol 69 cc646-7
Mr. PICKERSGILL (Bethnal Green, S.W.)

I desire to put a question to the First Lord of the Treasury of which I have given private notice. I have a notice on the paper in regard to the Vaccination Order of October 18th, 1898, and to the covering letter to the Boards of Guardians of the President of the Local Government Board. I desire to bring this subject before the House as early as possible, but do not wish to stand in the way of an early adjournment today if some arrangement can be come to. I wish to ask the First Lord of the Treasury whether, having regard to the importance of this matter and to the fact that the Local Government Board vote was scarcely discussed last year and very inadequately discussed in 1897, that vote would be put down at an early date in Supply?


No doubt Class 2 must be put down at an early date after Easter, but that does not necessarily mean that the vote for the Local Government Board will come up immediately for discussion. I should not like at this distance of time to pledge myself until I know what the wishes of the House are on the subject.
