§ Sir JOHN LONSDALE
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he is aware that the conjoint committee of the Irish Medical Association and British Medical Association received a definite pledge that a minimum capitation rate of 2s. 6d. would be provided for certification in the event of medical benefits for Ireland being deleted from the National Insurance Act; and if, in redemption of this pledge, he intends to make a further Grant to enable the Irish Commissioners to meet the financial difficulties in the way of the efficient working of the Act in Ireland?
§ Mr. MASTERMAN
The answer to the first part of the question is in the negative. The second does not therefore arise.
