HC Deb 28 October 1912 vol 43 c50W

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if any part of the additional £1,600,000 to be spent on the medical service under the National Insurance Act will be devoted to supplying better, attendance, drugs, and appliances for the fishermen who are absent for such long periods from their homes and cannot obtain the usual medical benefits under the Act?


As I stated in answer to the hon. Member for Colchester, the necessary modifications in the Regulations consequent upon the announcement, of the Chancellor of the Exchequer are now being considered.
