HC Deb 05 July 1904 vol 137 cc625-6
DR. AMBROSE (Mayo, W.)

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether his attention has been called to complaints made by medical practitioners within the Metropolitan area of the inadequacy of the fees paid by the police for medical services, and the difficulty and expense incurred before obtaining those fees; and, if so, whether, in view of the time involved in these police calls, which are generally cases of injury or poisoning, he can arrange that the fees shall be increased and shall be paid on demand at the local police station from which a medical man is called.

(Answered by Mr. Secretary Akers-Douglas.) This matter has not yet come before me, but I understand that the Commissioner of Police has received representations with regard to the amount of certain fees paid by the police for medical services, and that these representations are now receiving his consideration.
