48. Miss WARD
asked the Minister of Health whether he is yet in a position to make a statement regarding the Government's proposals for dealing with persons who have fallen out of national health insurance?
§ The PARLIAMENTARY SECRETARY to the MINISTRY of HEALTH (Mr. Shakespeare)
My right hon. Friend hopes to introduce legislation on this subject very shortly.
Is the hon. Member in a position to say that the medical side will be considered, as this matter is causing great anxiety to a number of people?
§ Mr. SHAKESPEARE
I do not think my hon. Friend will have long to wait, but I cannot anticipate the terms of the Bill.
§ Mr. RHYS DAVIES
May we take it that the Bill will be passed through all its stages before the end of July?
