§ 14. Sir Ian Fraser
asked the Minister of Health if Regional and Group Hospital Boards have power to co-opt a limited number of extra members.
§ Sir I. Fraser
Is it not inevitable when these committees are first set up that certain local interests, such as hospital boards and ex-Service men, and others, will be left out; and would it not give great public satisfaction if there were, say, a 10 per cent. margin for co-option?
§ Lieut.-Colonel Sir Thomas Moore
Could the right hon. Gentleman say whether verminous members will be included or excluded?
§ Mrs. Leah Manning
Is my right hon. Friend aware that in some localities the representatives of the local Labour Party seem to be the only people who have been left on these Boards?
§ Major Legge-Bourke
Would the right hon. Gentleman consider encouraging Boards, when selecting outside members to sit on the committees, to make sure that those areas which are not represented on the Boards, and which have hospitals, are allowed to produce members for the committees?
