HC Deb 08 May 1913 vol 52 cc2248-9W

asked the President of the Local Government Board whether he is aware that, in consequence of having removed from the house at which Form Q, under the Vaccination Act, 1907, was delivered, Mr. J. Jennings, of 22, Duckett Road, Hornsey, did not receive such form until three days after his child had become four months old; that he at once made a declaration of conscientious objection to the vaccination of his child and sent the paper immediately to the vaccination officer; and whether, under these circumstances, he can see his way to inform the vaccination officer that this is not a case in which he should take further proceedings?


I have made inquiries into the circumstances of this case, and have informed the vaccination officer that, in my opinion, he should not take further proceedings.
