1511 BURNS answered: J have seen a newspaper report of the inquest and have caused some inquiry to be made as to the matter. I do not understand that there was any evidence to show that the death was caused by vaccination. The post-mortem examination proved that the child died from broncho-pneumonia. I also understand that Dr. Bligh in the statements referred to in the question meant that he regarded the case as abnormal in so far as there was delay in the healing of the arm and that now and then a case arises where there is delay of this kind owing to accidental causes. I am not aware that it is the fact that cases of serious illness or death frequently result from vaccination from the lymph supplied from the National Vaccine Establishment, and I could not take any such action as that suggested. MONDAY, MAY 21ST. Vaccination Exemptio7t Certificates. Mr. JOHN RonERTSON asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether his attention had been called to the repeated refusals of the Barrow magistrates to grant a certificate of exemption from vaccination to Mr. William Watts, of 20. Westmoreland-street, Barrow-in-Furness, and whether he would take any action in the matter.-Mr. GLADSTONE answered : My attention has not been called to the case in question but I am at the present moment issuing from my department a circular to justices setting out what I am advised is the intention of the law respecting the grant of certificates of exemption. The Post-Office and T7aceination. Mr. T. F. RICHARDS asked the Postmaster-General whether he would consider the advisability of allowing the employees of his department who have a conscientious objection to vaccination to claim exemption. - Mr. BUXTON replied : The question is one affecting the whole Civil Service. I do not see my way to make a change. Boards of Gxcardians and Infectious Hospitals. Mr. JOHN O’CONNOR asked the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether, with the view of meeting cases of peop’e who are suffering from infectious diseases, but who are not destitute poor within the meaning of the Irish Poor-Law Relief Acts, and in view of the fact that it has been decided by the county court judge of Kildare that such persons cannot be compelled to pay for their maintenance in the workhouse hospital, he would consider the advisability of issuing orders showing how far district councils have power, under the existing law, to provide district hospitals for cases of infectious disease and how far boards of guardians can enter into agreements for the use of such hospitals for the accommodation of their cases.-Mr. BRYCE replied: The Local Government Board does not think that any necessity exists for the issue of an instructional circular as suggested.
