HC Deb 10 October 1912 vol 42 c535W

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether, in view of the general desire throughout the country to secure a settlement of the scale of remuneration for medical services under the National Insurance Act, he will consider, on request being made, the appointment of a Select Committee to take evidence and report to this House as to what would be adequate remuneration for the doctors?


I am obliged to my hon. Friend for his suggestion, but I fear that it would hardly be possible for a Select Committee to complete its investigations and issue its report in time to enable me to make effective use of the report before the 15th January.
