§ 41. Mr. T. RICHARDSON
asked the Comptroller of the Household, as representing the National Health Insurance Commissioners, whether his attention has been called to the fact that the Derbyshire Insurance Committee propose to charge the practitioners concerned with the estimated cost of medical service subcommittee inquiries; and whether he will take the necessary steps to prevent the Derbyshire or any other insurance committee from taking such action, which is giving rise in the medical profession to dissatisfaction with the administration of medical benefit?
§ Sir E. CORNWALL
My attention had not been drawn to the matter to which my hon. Friend refers, but in the event of any dispute arising between insurance committees and the practitioners, the latter have the right of appeal to the Commissioners who would, thereupon, deal with the question.
