HC Deb 07 December 1944 vol 406 cc752-3W
Mr. Leach

asked the Minister of Health if he is aware that medical officers dealing with the personnel of the C.D. service in London during the air raids of 1940 and 1941 discovered that the effects of protective inoculation against tetanus were frequently far more serious than the effects of the wounds sustained; and, whether, in view of the possibility of the health of farm workers being injured by antitetanus inoculation, he will oppose proposals now being made to compel these people to undergo such inoculations.

Mr. Willink

The answer to the first part of the Question is "No, Sir." As regards the second part of the Question, I am not aware of any proposals for the compulsory inoculation of farm workers against tetanus.
