§ MR. LUPTON (Lincolnshire, Sleaford)
To ask the President of the Local Government Board if he will state the number of persons proceeded against under the Vaccination Acts, the number of convictions, and the number of orders to vaccinate, for the year 1906; and if he will give the same information for the year 1907.
(Answered by Mr. Secretary Gladstone.) I beg to answer this Question on behalf of my right hon. friend. The figures for the year 1906 are to be found in the volume of Criminal Statistics just published, Tables XI. and XIV. They are as follows: (a) Number of persons proceeded against, 922; (b) number of persons convicted, 667; (c)) number of orders to vaccinate, 1,116. The 1907 figures cannot be given, as the returns for that year are not yet complete.
