HC Deb 08 May 1912 vol 38 cc543-4W

asked the Undersecretary of State for India, whether he will state the regulations made by the Madras Education Department in regard to small-pox and vaccination for schools receiving Grants-in-Aid?


In the case of elementary schools, the amount of the Grant-in-Aid may be reduced by not more than 25 per cent. on account of certain specified defects, one of which is "the presence of pupils unprotected from small-pox." In the case of secondary schools, no teacher who is not protected from small-pox may, without express sanction, be permanently employed in an aided institution; and in schools for boys and native Christian girls no pupil who is not protected from smallpox by vaccination or otherwise may be admitted.
