HC Deb 08 April 1930 vol 237 c1930

asked the Secretary of State for War whether he is aware that the members of the Royal Artillery band of Woolwich were marched to hospital for vaccination on Friday, 28th March; that most of them refused the operation; that some of these were threatened with withdrawal of passes and stoppage of leave; whether he will repeat the assurance given by his Department on 29th December, 1922, that it was never intended to make vaccination compulsory for the band; and whether he will see that no intimidation of any sort is used towards bandsmen who decline to be vaccinated?


I am making inquiry into this matter and will communicate with my hon. Friend as soon as the inquiry is complete.
