HC Deb 05 December 1939 vol 355 cc466-7W
Mr. Leach

asked the Secretary of State for War whether, in view of the fact that for the duration of the war, vaccination and inoculation are voluntary operations for all soldiers, he will abolish the recruiting regulation which forbids the enlistment of volunteers for the Regular Army who decline to promise to be vaccinated?

Mr. Hore-Belisha

No, Sir, my medical advisers are not prepared to make this recommendation.
