HC Deb 27 April 1959 vol 604 c888
48. Mr. K. Robinson

asked the Minister of Health when he expects to receive the report of the Royal Commission on doctors' pay.

Mr. Walker-Smith

The Royal Commission expects to receive all outstanding information by the autumn and, thereafter, it will report as soon as possible.

Mr. Robinson

Was not the Royal Commission asked to make its Report a matter of urgency? In view of the fact that the last information from the Minister was that he expected the Report this summer, why has there been further delay?

Mr. Walker-Smith

The Royal Commission is proceeding as quickly as it can compatible with doing the job it was asked to do. In response to the hon. Member, or other hon. Members, I pass on expectations as I receive them from the Royal Commission.
