§ Captain GILMOUR
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether the Insurance Commissioners have made any regulations as to the terms under which patients will be admitted to sanatoria for treatment; and if his attention has been drawn to the fact that in some cases the patient is required to provide, an outfit of clothing to the value of £5?
§ Mr. MASTERMAN
No regulations have been made by the Insurance Commissioners as to the terms under which patients will be admitted to sanatoria for treatment. Such terms are primarily a matter for agreement between the insurance committee and the managers of the sanatorium, but the arrangements made require the approval of the Commissioners, and they would not approve of any agreement which would impose upon an insured person the liability mentioned in the question. I should be glad if the hon. and gallant Member would inform me of the case which he has in mind.
