§ 68. Mr. GODFREY LOCKER-LAMPSON
asked whether any provision has been made under the National Insurance Act for emergency medical attendance on insured persons who happen to be taken suddenly ill outside the panel district in which their doctor officiates?
77. Mr. F. HALL
asked if, in cases of emergency, it is open to an insured person to obtain the services of a doctor other than the one on the 35 panel by whom he has elected to be treated, and to recover any expenditure so incurred?
§ Mr. MASTERMAN
It is, of course, open to an insured person to obtain the services of another doctor in an emergency. The Act does not contemplate any insured person having the services of more than one doctor at a time, and there is no power to recover any expenditure incurred, although reciprocal arrangements could probably be made between the panel doctors themselves for such cases.
§ Sir A. MARKHAM
May I ask whether it is in order for an hon. Member to put ten questions on the same day to the same Department? On several occasions when I have brought questions I have been informed by the Clerks at the Table that no more than four questions could be asked.
