HC Deb 22 November 1939 vol 353 c1199
17. Mr. Viant

asked the Secretary of State for Air whether the circular regarding the voluntary nature of vaccination and inoculation for soldiers circulated to all commands on 18th September was sent to Royal Air Force squadrons?

Sir K. Wood

Certain instructions were issued to Royal Air Force Commands in June last, but a further circular is now being issued to the Commands.

Mrs. Tate

Will the right hon. Gentleman also inform the troops that Government lymph is produced partly from rabbits, and is very likely, therefore, to spread encephalitis, and is exceedingly dangerous to use?
