§ 53. Mr. FREEMAN
asked the Minister of Health whether, in view of the fact that over 13,000 more parents claimed exemption from vaccination last year than those who allowed their children to undergo this operation, he will consider the desirability of amending the com- 391 pulsory powers of the Vaccination Acts and so avoid the necessity of applying to a magistrate, obtaining special certificates, and other forms of inconvenience and expense placed on the majority of the population, who have conscientious objections to vaccination?
§ Miss LAWRENCE
