HC Deb 24 July 1912 vol 41 c1177

asked if the National Health Commissioners have received a letter, dated the 2nd July, from the Blackburn and District Friendly Societies' Council, representing 9,000 members, protesting against the constitution of the provisional committee for Blackburn in so far as the representation of the friendly societies is concerned, and, if so, what answer has been made to the representations set forth in that letter; on what principles the friendly societies' representation on the provisional committee was made; if the appointments were made by the Commissioners or by whom; and why the recommendations of a representative body like the Friendly Societies' Council were practically ignored?


I will send my hon. Friend a copy of the reply sent to the letter referred to.
