§ SIR WALTER FOSTER (Derby, Ilkeston)
I beg to ask the President of the Local Government Board whether vaccination medical officers come under the provisions of the Poor Law Superannuation Act of 1896; and, if not, whether he will take steps to amend the Act in this respect?
§ THE PRESIDENT OF THE LOCAL GOVERNMENT BOARD (Mr. HENRY CHAPLIN,) Lincolnshire, Sleaford
The Local Government Board are of opinion that neither under the Superannuation Act of 1864, nor under the Act of last Session, is a Public Vaccinator who is paid by fees under a contract, an officer to whom a superannuation could be granted. I am not contemplating any alteration of the law in this respect.
