HC Deb 16 November 1939 vol 353 cc811-2
75. Mr. Groves

asked the Minister of Health whether he has yet appointed an advisory committee of medical men to assist him in the provision of adequate medical attendance and treatment for the women and children evacuated to Wiltshire and other places; and, if so, whether there is a representative of the Medical Practitioners' Union on that advisory committee?

Mr. Elliot

No such advisory committee as is suggested in the question has been appointed. The arrangements made for the provision of medical treatment in the evacuation areas are fully described in the Ministry's Circular 1882, of which I am sending the hon. Member a copy.

Sir Francis Fremantle

Is it not the fact that members of the Medical Practitioners Union are all able to join the British Medical Association, as many have done, or to be represented on the Central Emergency Committee, as man}' of them are?
