HC Deb 16 June 1913 vol 54 cc56-7W

asked the President of the Local Government Board whether he is aware that Mrs. Dalton, of Lilac Walk, Hathersage, Derbyshire, made a declaration under the Vaccination Act, 1907, and sent it to the vaccination officer; that the officer, after notifying the husband that the form was not in order, refused either to return it or to supply a fresh form; and that in consequence of this action Mr. Dalton was unable to make a declaration within the legal period of four months from the birth of his child; and whether, under the circumstances, he will instruct the vaccination officer to take no further proceedings?


The Local Government Board have inquired into the circumstances of this case, but do not consider that it is one in which they can properly intervene in the manner proposed.
