HC Deb 17 January 1924 vol 169 c245

asked the Minister of Pensions whether, although the late Deputy Commissioner of Medical Services at Ministry headquarters has no knowledge of nervous disorders, instructions have been issued that he is to attend 11 sessions weekly at the neurological clinic; whether the maximum number of sessions a specialist is permitted to attend in one week is nine; what was the salary of the officer as a Deputy Commissioner of Medical Services; and what will be his emoluments yearly if he attends 11 sessions weekly at the clinic?


I should be glad if the hon. Member would let me have further particulars of the case he has in mind, as so far I have been unable to identify any medical officer as answering to the description given. I may mention, however, that the number of sessional attendances made by a specialist at a clinic is not limited in the manner suggested, but as a general rule does not exceed eleven in a week.
