HC Deb 26 November 1942 vol 385 c877
65. Mr. MacLaren

asked the Minister of Health whether he will give an assurance that in any State medical scheme, the interests of that section of the public, estimated at approximately 1,000,000 people of all classes, who prefer to be treated by doctors trained in homœopathic medicine, will be adequately safeguarded, and that provision will be made for an adequate number of homœopathic doctors to meet the needs of this section of the public?

Miss Horsbrugh

The institution of any new public medical service would require the approval of Parliament. My right hon. Friend cannot undertake to forecast the character of any legislation which the Government might think fit to bring forward.
