§ MR. B. L. COHEN (Islington, E.)
I beg to ask the President of the Local Government Board, whether, in view of the fact, as shown in the last Report of the Local Government Board, that the percentage of unvaccinated children has grown in the Metropolis from 8.8 in 1872 to 18.4 in 1892, and in the rest of England from 4.5 in 1872 to 14.3 in 1892, he can state when the Report of the Royal Commission on Vaccination, appointed as long back as 1889, will be published; and, whether he will exercise his influence to hasten the publication?
§ MR. CHAPLIN
I stated on Tuesday last that the Royal Commission on Vaccination were engaged in the consideration of their Report, and hope to present it before long. I attach great importance 821 to the Report being published at the earliest date possible, and the Commissioners have already been made aware more than once of my views on the subject.
