§ Mr. HILLS
asked whether any local medical committees, as required by the National Insurance Act, have yet been formed in any county; and, if so, in how many and by what method such committees were appointed?
§ Mr. MASTERMAN
Yes, Sir; seventy-one local medical committees have been recognised by the Insurance Commissioners in accordance with Section 62 of the National Insurance Act. The Commissioners require to be satisfied that the local medical committee before it is recognised is fully representative of the medical practitioners in the area.
