§ 42. Mr. Warbey
asked the Minister of Health whether he will introduce amending legislation to empower regional hospital boards to provide or pay for treatment outside Great Britain in appropriate cases.
§ Mr. Warbey
Is my right hon. Friend aware that in the case to which I have drawn his attention, this girl of very high educational attainment could only combine the continued study of languages with treatment for her ailment by going to a sanatorium in Switzerland? As many regional hospital boards are in favour of closing the gap in this legislation, will he do something about it?
§ Sir T. Moore
What about officers and men of the Merchant Navy who are probably out of the country for 50 weeks of the 52 in the year?
