HC Deb 09 May 1968 vol 764 c141W
Captain Kerby

asked the Minister of Health in how many cases, known to him, unvaccinated immigrants have arrived, seeking entry into the United Kingdom, from India, Pakistan, East Africa and elsewhere, making use of false international vaccination certificates, obtained in their countries of origin by fraud.

Mr. K. Robinson

Smallpox vaccination is not compulsory under the International Sanitary Regulations, and there is no requirement that the arrival of passengers with invalid certificates, however obtained, should be recorded. Such passengers are offered vaccination, placed in isolation, or put under surveillance as the circumstances require.
