HC Deb 08 February 1940 vol 357 c407
76. Sir E. Graham-Little

asked the Minister of Health whether he will give the names of the 11 consultant advisers of the Emergency Hospital Service receiving salaries of £1,400 per annum; if these are whole-time appointments, debarring their holders from filling any other paid post or from carrying on private practice; and what is the duration of tenure proposed for these offices?

Mr. Elliot

The names of the consultant advisers in the Emergency Medical Service, numbering in England and Wales 13, were published in the White Paper (Cmd. 6061) presented to Parliament in July last. Since then Lord Dawson has been added. Seven of these are on a whole-time basis, which debars them from private practice. In the case of any of them who may already have occupied paid posts elsewhere prior to their appointment any necessary adjustment is a matter between them and the employing authority. The remainder are on a part-time basis at proportionate salaries. The appointments will normally continue for the duration of the war.
