HC Deb 17 February 1927 vol 202 cc1098-9

asked the Minister of Health whether he has considered the recommendation made by the Interdepartmental Committee appointed to consider the effect on migration of schemes of social insurance that the 10s. 6d. fee for the medical examination of those seeking assisted passages should be paid from National Health Insurance funds; and what action he proposes to take?


I have considered the recommendation to which the hon. Members refers. Legislation will be required to give effect to it, and I hope to include the necessary provision in the next Bill relating to National Health Insurance.
