HC Deb 03 May 1906 vol 156 cc694-5
MR. EUGENE WASON (Clackmannan and Kinross)

To ask the Secretary of State for War whether he has yet received the Report of the Committee appointed to consider the question as to the value of inoculation against enteric fever; and, if so, will he lay it upon the Table of the House.

(Answered by Mr. Secretary Haldane.) The final Report of the Antityphoid Inoculation Committee has not yet teen received. An interim Report has, however, been received, and the recommendation contained therein that the practice of voluntary inoculation against enteric fever should be resumed, has been approved by the Army Council. The voluntary inoculation of men proceeding abroad is now being carried out, and arrangements are being made for those now serving in India. I will lay this Report upon the Table.
