HC Deb 27 January 1913 vol 47 c981
63. Mr. J. WARD

asked whether the attention of the President of the Local Government Board has been drawn to the fact that Mr. E. Tonge, 1, Angel Cottages, Plynlimmon Road, Hastings, in April last, when his child was about two months old, made a declaration of objection to vaccination before Mr. Eaton, J.P., and posted the form to the vaccination officer; whether he is aware that the officer is now threatening proceedings on the ground that he did not receive the exemption paper, although he did not send Form Q to the parent; and whether he will inform the officer that, under the circumstances, this is a case in which a summons need not be issued?


My attention has been drawn to this case. I communicated with the vaccination officer, and, upon receiving his reply, informed him that, in my opinion, this is not a case in which he should take further proceedings.
