§ 47. Mr. GROVES
asked the Minister of Health whether he is aware that compensation for injury to health arising from vaccination is now being paid in Germany; and whether he is prepared to take steps to enable the payment of similar compensation for the cases of post-vaccinal encephalitis and other injuries by vaccination in this country?
§ The PARLIAMENTARY SECRETARY to the MINISTRY of HEALTH (Mr. Ernest Brown)
My right hon. Friend has no information on the first part of the question. With regard to the second part, the Vaccination Acts do not provide for the payment of compensation in such cases and my right hon. Friend has no power to vary their provisions.
