HC Deb 06 February 1913 vol 48 c45W

asked the Secretary to the Treasury if the Insurance Commissioners have received representations of the inconvenience arising from the absence of information as to the mileage grant promised by the Chancellor of the Exchequer to those areas described as moorland and mountain; whether he is aware that since doctors are refusing to attend insured persons at a distance without extra remuneration those persons are being deprived of medical benefit; and will he say what action is to be taken in the matter?


The Government propose to ask Parliament to vote a sum of £50,000 for mileage in sparsely populated districts in Great Britain in addition to a Special Grant for the Highlands and Islands of Scotland.
