HC Deb 24 April 1941 vol 371 cc239-40
31. Mr. Martin

asked the Minister of Health whether he has considered the question of a national rehabilitation scheme for persons injured, either in the civil and military services or in industry, by enemy action; and whether he is instituting comprehensive medical services for this purpose?

The Minister of Health (Mr. Ernest Brown)

I would refer my hon. Friend to the full statement on this subject which I made on 3rd April in reply to a Question by my hon. Friend the Member for Gateshead (Mr. Magnay).

Mr. Martin

Does my right hon. Friend appreciate the need for urgency in this matter?

Mr. Brown

It is for that reason we worked out the scheme which is fully outlined in that long statement.
