HC Deb 16 December 1948 vol 459 cc1365-6
22. Mr. Collins

asked the Minister of Health whether he proposes to accept the recommendations of the Legal Committee on Medical Partnerships.

Mr. Bevan

Yes, Sir, and so far as legislation is required, proposals will be made in the forthcoming Bill to amend the National Health Service Act.

Mr. Collins

Can my right hon. Friend give any indication when he hopes to introduce the amending legislation?

Mr. Bevan

I cannot at the moment, but I hope there will not be very much delay.
