§ Mr. BLACK
asked the Minister of Health whether he will inquire into the costs claimed in the case brought by the Kingston vaccination officer against Mr. Barnet Marks of St. Mark's Hill, Surbiton, for neglecting to have his child vaccinated, when the costs amounted to £1 11s. 6d. compared with 6s. or 7s. in most similar cases brought by other vaccination officers and whether he will see that the Kingston vaccination officer does not in future put vaccination defaulters to unnecessary expense in the matter of Court costs?
§ Mr. WHEATLEY
I have inquired into this case, and am informed that the circumstances were unusual. I have no reason to believe that this vaccination officer puts defaulters to unnecessary expense in the matter of costs.2084W
