HC Deb 28 April 1915 vol 71 cc728-9W

asked the Under-Secretary for War whether he is aware that Private William Millan, of Falkirk, whilst in training at Troon with the Highland Light Infantry, was inoculated with anti-typhoid vaccine although he had not been well for some little time previously, and that he became very ill within twenty-four hours afterwards and in the course of a few days had to be removed to Kilmarnock hospital, where he died eight days later from typhoid fever; whether he is aware that the health of many soldiers has been seriously impaired by inoculation; and whether he proposes to take any action in the matter?


Inquiry is being made.
