HC Deb 01 March 1881 vol 258 c1952

asked the Vice president of the Council, Whether it is decided, as stated in the "Times," to refer the question of medical reform to a Royal Commission, instead of permitting the inquiry commenced before a Select Committee to be concluded?


Sir, after consulting several Members of this House who served on the Committees on Medical Acts, we have arrived at the conclusion that a Royal Commission will afford the best means by which a satisfactory investigation and Report upon these Acts can be obtained.
