§ 27. Viscount Hinchingbrooke
asked the Minister of Health whether he is aware that the National Anti-Vaccination League is circulating literature to expectant and nursing mothers, advocating a course of action with regard to vaccination and diphtheria immunisation contrary to the declared policy of his department; and whether he has any statement to make?
§ Mr. E. Brown
Yes, Sir. I am of opinion that they are best countered by effective and positive action. The Ministry and local authorities are therefore continuing propaganda to advise parents to have their children protected by methods supported by the best medical opinion.
§ Viscount Hinchingbrooke
Does my right hon. Friend consider that it is right and proper for women in this condition to be subjected to a barrage of conflicting views?
§ Professor A. V. Hill
Can my right hon. Friend say whether the National Anti-Vaccination League is regarded as a charity organisation and excused the payment of Income Tax?
§ Professor Hill
Will my right hon. Friend ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether it is regarded as a charity?
