§ Mr. GROVES
asked the Minister of Health whether, since the administration of the Vaccination Acts has been taken over by the councils, any reports regarding the number of vaccinations performed in those countries where the Act is administered by county councils have been received by the Ministry; and, if not, whether any provision has been made for such reports to be sent in as were formerly sent in by vaccination officers under boards of guardians?
§ Sir K. WOOD
The Local Government Act, 1929, gave rise to no change in the previous practice by which returns are 1667W annually rendered by individual vaccination officers. These returns are, however, aggregated for the purpose only of presenting figures for England and Wales as a whole; and it has not appeared necessary to tabulate or publish any figures for administrative areas.
