HC Deb 30 May 1911 vol 26 cc1036-7W

asked the Under-Secretary of State for War whether he will issue such instructions to the Army Medical Department as will ensure that the conscientious objections of parents who secured exemption under the Vaccination Act, 1898, or who have made declarations of conscientious objection under the Vaccination Act, 1907, shall in future be respected?

Colonel SEELY

I am not quite sure to what regulation the question refers. If the hon. Gentleman has in mind the rules for the management of military barracks, I may say that there is no intention of amending these regulations so as to admit of the residence of unvaccinated persons in barracks.
