HC Deb 16 July 1906 vol 160 c1345

I beg to ask the President of the Board of Education whether the proviso in the regulations for the instruction and training of pupil teachers, which comes into force on August 1st next, that candidates must be vaccinated except when a parent or guardian has declared a conscientious objection means that a magistrate must have granted a certificate, or that such objection may be declared to the local education authorities irrespective of any action that a magistrate may have seen fit to take.


The Board will not require for the purpose of its registration any declaration before a magistrate, but will be satisfied with a declaration signed by the candidate or when a minor by his parent or guardian, to be countersigned by the local authority's representative and one other responsible person.
