HC Deb 07 April 1909 vol 3 c1239W

asked the Chief Secretary for Ireland if he is aware that during the years 1887 to 1906 inclusive there were 5,58[...] offences against the Vaccination Acts in Ireland; and if, having regard to this evidence as well as other evidence of objection to the Vaccination Acts, he will bring in a Bill to amend those Acts?


The number of offences against the Vaccination Acts in Ireland during the 20 years mentioned in the question is correctly stated. The hon. Member has already been informed, in reply to a question asked on his behalf on 30th March, that I cannot undertake to introduce legislation on the subject.
