HC Deb 06 December 1922 vol 159 c1797W

asked the Minister of Labour, as representing the Ministry of Health, whether he is aware that all the workpeople of the Imperial Tobacco Company have been informed that they must be vaccinated forthwith, and that threats are made by some officials of the company, particularly in the London area, that any employé who declines to submit himself to vaccination will be dismissed the service: and whether the Ministry has at any time instructed the Imperial Tobacco Company or any other employer that if all their employés are not vaccinated and any case of small-pox is reported from among them the Ministry will issue an Order for the closing of the factory or workshop for three months?


I have no information as to the first part of the question. The answer to the second part is in the negative.
