§ SIR JOHN LENG (Dundee)
To ask the Lord Advocate whether the Vaccination (Scotland) Act of 1898, which expires this year, will be renewed; and, if so, whether the claims of Scotland to equal treatment with England in the supply of glycerinated calf lymph from an animal vaccine station for the use of vaccinators in Scotland will be recognised and provided for as South of the Tweed; and whether the conscientious objector 798 to vaccination in Scotland will be placed in the same position as in England.
(Answered by Mr. Graham Murray.) The Act to which the hon. Member refers is an English Act. There is no such Act applicable to Scotland which expires this year.
