HC Deb 03 April 1917 vol 92 c1115

asked the Comptroller to the Household, as representing the National Health Insurance Commissioners, whether he is aware that the panel doctors are considering their position in view of the intention to exclude them for all practical purposes from the new Advisory Committee; and whether he proposes to give them adequate representation?


asked whether, as stated by Sir Robert Morant, the new Advisory Committee appointed under Section 58 of the National Insurance Act, 1911, is specifically set up for approved society work; whether he intends to form a separate Advisory Committee for doctors; and whether he is aware that Section 57 only contemplates one Advisory Committee?

Sir EDWIN CORNWALL (Comptroller of the Household)

Perhaps I may be allowed to refer my hon. Friends to the answers I gave yesterday to the hon. Members for the Westhoughton Division of Lancashire, West Ham, and Poplar.
