§ 46. Mr. Pavitt
asked the Minister of Health why a visiting consultant who rents a consulting room in the vicinity of a hospital for one day each week, but is giving three days' service, is not allowed a mileage allowance on the days when he has no consulting room.
§ Mr. Powell
Where a doctor is dissatisfied with the way the conditions for mileage allowance are applied to him, the regional appeal machinery is available.
§ Mr. Pavitt
Is it not nonsense that there should be differential treatment as between one consultant and another in this respect? If a regional board turns down a claim for mileage on the plea that the consulting room has a letter box, has not this reached the height of nonsense?
