HL Deb 20 May 1943 vol 127 c618

My Lords, I beg to ask the question standing in my name.

[The question was as follows:

To ask His Majesty's Government, whether, in view of the special conditions obtaining in Wales, they will take steps to appoint a Welsh Health Services Medical Advisory Committee following the recent creation of similar committees for England and Scotland.]


My Lords, the Minister of Health is responsible for the health services in Wales no less than in England, and the Committee appointed in November last to advise him on the medical aspects of problems affecting the health of the people is equally concerned with both countries. The Committee, accordingly, includes two members with special experience of Welsh conditions, and no separate committee appears to be necessary.

House adjourned.
