33. Mr. F. HALL
asked the Secretary to the Treasury if his attention has been called to the recent inquest on Henry Goodwin, a journeyman butcher of Bethnal Green, who was an insured person, and was certified to the Prudential Insurance Company, his society, to be suffering from rheumatism; whether he is aware that Goodwin died of acute tuberculosis of the lungs, and that it was stated at the inquest that if the deceased had been sent to a sanatorium earlier his life might have been saved; will he state the name of the doctor who attended Goodwin; and is he still upon the insurance panel?
I am informed by the London Insurance Committee that the case referred to is at present under investigation by the Medical Service Sub-Committee. Pending this report it would be improper for me to make any statement.
