HC Deb 08 April 1914 vol 60 c1961

asked the Home Secretary if he is aware that a person by the name of E. Jalinghs, of 20, Old Cavendish Street, London, E., is sending out letters to chemists in various parts of the country stating that they may find it necessary to grant an extended credit for the supply of drugs in connection with the National Health Insurance Act, and that the person in question informs the chemists that they can anticipate such payment due on terms at a low commercial cost; and, seeing that the writer also states that the entire transaction can be completed by post, being willing to forward Bank of England notes against simple promise to repay, will he say if he intends taking any action in the matter?

Mr. WEDGWOOD BENN (Lord of the Treasury)

My right hon. Friend was not previously aware of the circumstances referred to, and he does not see what action he can take in the matter.
