§ 6. Mr. NEWMAN
asked the hon. Member for St. George's-in-the-East, as representing the Insurance Commissioners, whether he has received a resolution passed by the Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland on 19th April expressing regret that insured persons who make their own arrangements for medical benefit may obtain treatment from non-qualified persons, and deploring that recognition should be given and provision made for the payment of public money to persons who have no legal qualification to practise and concerning whose medical knowledge there exists no sort of guarantee; and, if so, whether he proposes to take any action in the matter?
My right hon. Friend's attention has already been drawn to the resolution in question, which appears to be based on a misapprehension as to the scope of the Regulations alluded to. I would refer the hon. Member to my reply of the 6th March to the hon. Member for South Somerset.
