§ 8. Mr. GEORGE ROBERTS
asked the hon. Member for St. George's-in-the-East, as representing the Insurance Commissioners, if resolutions have been received from insurance committees expressing the view that, having regard to the large contributions which such committees make to the schemes of local authorities for the treatment of tuberculosis, provision should exist for the appropriate representation of insurance committees in the administration of this benefit; if so, whether such resolutions have been considered; and whether it is proposed to take action in accordance therewith?
§ The PARLIAMENTARY SECRETARY of the BOARD of EDUCATION (Dr. Addison)
My hon. Friend has asked me 223 to answer this question. The Commissioners have received representations from certain insurance committees in England expressing the view referred to in the question. If I rightly understand the suggestion of my hon. Friend effect could not be given to it without legislation.
