HC Deb 06 April 1914 vol 60 c1645W

asked the President of the Local Government Board whether his attention has been drawn to the case of Mr. J. Pursell, of Deptford, S.E., who at the Greenwich Police Court made a declaration of conscientious objection to the vaccination of his child, but the posting of the form to the vaccination officer within the limit of seven days was accidentally overlooked; and whether, under such circumstances, it is proposed to arrest proceedings?


The Local Government Board have informed the vaccination officer that they do not think that this is a case in which he should take proceedings.
