§ 50. Mr. PETO
asked the Prime Minister whether he has received a copy of a resolution passed at a special general meeting of the National Vaccination Officers' Association on 2nd July last, with regard to the way in which the Local Government Board have treated the case of the vaccination officer of the Kingston union, also a letter, dated the 7th July last, from the vaccination officer to the Kingston union with regard to the way in which his case had been treated; whether his special attention has been drawn to pages 17 to 27 of the statement of case on behalf of vaccination officers issued by the said association and dated 27th April last, a copy of which was sent to him at the time of publication and duly acknowledged; and, if so, in view of the way in which the cases referred to in the said statement of case, together with the case of the vaccination officer for the Kingston union, have been dealt with by the Local Government Board, he will reconsider his decision that no action on his part is necessary?
§ The PRIME MINISTER
I have received both the resolution and the letter referred to. The whole question has been very carefully considered, but I would point out that the matter is entirely within the administrative jurisdiction of the Local Government Board.
