§ 17. Sir J. D. REES
asked whether Mr. Claud Schuster has been appointed legal member of the Health Insurance Commission; and, if so, what charge is thereby laid upon the taxpayer?
Mr. Schuster will be appointed legal member of the National Health Insurance Commission as from 13th May next without extra remuneration. The separation of the posts of secretary and legal adviser to the Commission will entail the addition of £1,000 a year on the administrative side in respect of the salary of the new secretary, and a saving of about the same amount on the legal side in view of the additional time which Mr. Schuster will be able to devote to that side of the work.
