§ SIR C. DILKE
I beg to ask the Lord Advocate if it is intended to propose legislation to extend to Scotland any part of the provisions of the Vaccination Bill now before Parliament?
§ THE LORD ADVOCATE (Mr. GRAHAM MURRAY, Buteshire)
The system in regard to vaccination carried out in Scotland has hitherto worked successfully, and the Secretary for Scotland cannot at present come under any obligation to propose legislation on the subject.
§ MR. SIR C. DILKE
Are there not many now imprisoned in Scotland whose case would be met by the conscientious objection clause?
§ MR. T. P. O'CONNOR (Liverpool, Scotland)
Is it not the case that the defaulters in Scotland represent 3 per cent.?
§ MR. GRAHAM MURRAY
I am not aware of the number, but there is no practical difficulty in working the Act, and that being so, there is no necessity to make any change.
