§ 42. Mr. Leach
asked the Under-Secretary of State for Dominion Affairs whether he is aware that the deputy Minister of Health for Ontario has informed Ontario doctors that all children arriving from Britain under the evacuation scheme will be detained for 10 days 208 for medical inspection, vaccination, tuberculin testing and one injection of toxoid; and whether, as these operations are not compulsory for Canadian children, he will make representations to the Canadian Government requesting that none of these operations shall be performed without the consent of the parents of the children?
§ The Under-Secretary of State for Dominion Affairs (Mr. Shakespeare)
I am making inquiries of the Canadian Government and will communicate with the hon. Member as soon as possible.
§ Mr. Shakespeare
We must assume, until we know what the real facts are, that there has been a misunderstanding.
