HC Deb 30 July 1913 vol 56 c544W

asked the President of the Local Government Board whether his attention has been directed to figures showing that the child population of the city of Liverpool under five years of age is inefficiently vaccinated, the marks being less than the minimum standard of half a square inch prescribed by the Board; and, if so, will he say what steps he proposes to take in the matter?


The minimum standard referred to is applicable only to vaccinations performed by public vaccinators at the public cost; and my powers in regard to vaccination do not extend to private medical practitioners.
