HC Deb 28 January 1963 vol 670 c563
13. Mr. H. Hynd

asked the Minister of Health, which diseases will qualify for treatment in foreign medical establishments under Article 2 of the Euro pean Agreement on Mutual Assistance in the Matter of Special Medical Treat ments and Climatic Facilities, Cmnd. 1822, and whether these will include multiple sclerosis.

Mr. Powell

None, Sir.

Mr. Hynd

Then what was the good of this agreement? If there is no provision under the agreement for anything to be done, it would not seem to serve any purpose at all.

Mr. Powell

When the agreement was signed by Her Majesty's Government it was made clear that it would not apply to people resident in this country.
