HC Deb 02 July 1940 vol 362 cc685-6W
Mr. A. Edwards

asked the Secretary of State for War why it is that, as the proportion of men unfit for duty within 48 hours of inoculation is not great, the Regulations insist upon men being rested for 48 hours after this operation is undergone?

Mr. Eden

The period of 48 hours rest is prescribed in order to minimise the temporary inconvenience caused by inoculation.
