HC Deb 19 February 1917 vol 90 cc967-8

asked the Comptroller of the Household, as representing the National Health Insurance Commissioners, whether his attention has been drawn to the dissatisfaction which exists amongst medical practitioners in Monmouthshire at the payments in advance of remuneration for last year being reduced by 30 per cent, of the amount due as shown by the insured persons on the doctors' lists; and whether any steps can be taken to make a further payment on account forthwith?


I have made inquiries, and am informed that the Monmouthshire Insurance Committee have reserved a small margin, not exceeding 5 ½ per cent., from the advance payments suggested by the Commissioners. I am, however, in communication with the insurance committee with a view to such further sums being advanced as the local conditions will justify.
