HC Deb 28 May 1936 vol 312 c2181
35. Mr. SEXTON

asked the Minister of Health, whether he is satisfied that inoculation against diphtheria is such a proved success as to warrant advising compulsory use?


I am satisfied that artificial immunisation against diphtheria is based on sound scientific principles and has proved of value, but I should not be prepared to advise that its use should be made compulsory.
