§ MR. BARTLEY
I beg to ask the President of the Local Government Board whether he can state what progress has been made in the supply of Government lymph; whether the Local Government Board has been able to overtake the 1258 demand for it; and whether any arrangements have yet been made to supply private practitioners as well as the public vaccinators with Government lymph for primary and secondary vaccinations at about cost price.
§ MR. WALTER LONG
I am glad to say that since the early part of last I month I have been able to meet all the demands made by public vaccinators for lymph, not only for primary vaccinations but also for re-vaccinations. As regards the last part of the Question, I have carefully considered the matter, but I regret that I have not seen my way to comply with the suggestion of my hon. friend.
