HC Deb 17 July 1914 vol 64 c2286W

asked the President of the Local Government Board whether his attention has been called to the fact that, in consequence of the non-receipt by Mr. T. Dawson, of Horwich, of Form Q until after his child was four months old, he failed to make a statutory declaration of conscientious objection to the infant's vaccination; and whether, seeing that there had been failure on the part of the vaccination officer to send this reminder notice within the stipulated time, he can take steps to secure that in this case proceedings shall not be instituted against the parent, who would have made the declaration if Form Q had been received in time?


My attention has been called to this case, and I am making inquiry into the circumstances.
