§ 40. Mr. Tilney
asked the Minister of Health what representations he has re ceived from doctors resident at Alder Hay Hospital, Liverpool, concerning the in crease in emolument charges.
§ Mr. Tilney
Is my hon. Friend aware that soon she will be receiving representations in that the charge on a senior hospital medical officer has been put up from £160 per annum to £350 per annum? Would she see that there is some appeal procedure when the services do not match up with the charge and, finally, can she say whether the charge applies only to bachelors or also to people who are married?
§ Miss Hornsby-Smith
These new charges are payable under an agreement which has been reached by the Medical Whitley Council after assessing accommodation available. In some cases the charges are higher, in others they have been lowered. This is a matter which has been carefully investigated by the Medical Whitley Council.
