§ MR. LONSDALE
I beg to ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether his attention has been called to the practices of certain persons styling themselves Christian Scientists; and whether, with the view of preventing danger to the lives of credulous persons by these practitioners, he will take measures, by legislation or otherwise, to prevent them from carrying on their practices.
§ THE SECRETARY OF STATE FOR THE HOME DEPARTMENT (Mr. GLADSTONE, Leeds, W.)
The law with regard to these practices will probably be further elucidated by the proceedings 475 in the case of the Christian Scientist who has recently been charged with manslaughter in respect of the late Major Whyte. Till these proceedings are concluded I can express no opinion on the subject.
