§ Mr. GROVES
asked the Minister of Health whether, in view of the evidence placed before the French Academy of Medicine indicating that vaccination may 1049W increase susceptibility to encephalitis, he will consider the advisability of suspending the operation of the Vaccination Acts while the whole question of the danger of increasing susceptibility to disease in general by vaccination against a single disease is investigated?
§ Sir K. WOOD
No, Sir. The investigation of methods to diminish or remove any risks which may result from vaccination is one of the matters referred to the Committee on Vaccination which has recently been appointed, and as at present advised, my right hon. Friend sees no necessity to consider any interference with the operation of the Vaccination Acts.
§ Mr. COMPTON
asked the Minister of Health whether any estimate can be given of the percentage of recoveries from juvenile encephalitis which have suffered mental or moral injury from that disease?
§ Mr. NEVILLE CHAMBERLAIN
I regret that at present there is not sufficient information available to enable such an estimate to be given.
