HC Deb 10 August 1916 vol 85 c1245W

asked the Secretary to the Admiralty if there is any legal obligation on men entering the Navy to be vaccinated; and, if so, under what Act of Parliament this compulsion is authorised?


A condition of entry into the Navy is that the man or boy must express his willingness to be vaccinated or revaccinated; this condition has been laid down by the Board of Admiralty on the advice of their medical officers.
