§ 22. Mr. DORAN
asked the Minister of Health if he is aware that local arrange- 1649 ments for the use of an ambulance do not permit an ambulance to render aid, even in the case of a serious accident, in an adjoining district; and will he call together a conference of all the metropolitan and local authorities concerned, with a view to legislation to put an end to the present conditions which endanger the life of an injured person?
Sir H. YOUNG
I am not aware that the position generally throughout the country is as stated in the first part of the question. I am causing inquiries to be made into the circumstances of the case recently reported in the Press in which difficulty arose, and I will consider whether any general action is necessary.
