HC Deb 02 November 1909 vol 12 c1800W

asked the hon. Member for South Somerset, as representing the President of the Board of Agriculture, if he can state how many vaccine farms there are in the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland; if there is one, or more, in Scotland; and in what locality is each vaccine farm situated?


Perhaps I may be allowed to answer this question. So far as I am aware there are only two "vaccine farms" in England and Wales, one belonging to the Local Government Board at Hendon, and the other belonging to the Lister Institute at Elstree. I believe that there is one in Ireland belonging to the Irish Local Government Board, and that there is none in Scotland. So far as relates to the two last-mentioned countries, however, the matter is rather one for the Secretary for Scotland and the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant, respectively, than for me.
