§ Sir J. D. REES
asked whether the lecturers who are maintained by the National Health Insurance Committee are paid from public funds; and whether it is the case that such Committee repudiates the authenticity of, or any responsibility for, such advice or information as such lecturers afford?
§ Mr. MASTERMAN
The position and payment of the official lecturers has been fully explained in repeated answers to questions in several Debates in this House and in documents issued by the Commissioners to all Members of the House. The lecturers are paid out of public funds, and their exact position in relation to the Commissioners has been fully explained in the Official Instructions to Lecturers issued last January.
