HC Deb 12 February 1926 vol 191 c1413W

asked the Minister of Health whether, in view of the reported increase in cases of small-pox, his Department intends to take any special steps to call the attention of the public to the means by which vaccination is accessible to all who desire it?

The MINISTER of HEALTH (Mr. Neville Chamberlain)

As at present advised I do not think any special steps are necessary in the direction suggested by my hon. Friend. In areas invaded by small-pox it is the usual practice for the local sanitary authorities and boards of guardians to give public notice of the facilities available for vaccination free of cost to all who desire it.
