HC Deb 08 January 1913 vol 46 c1193W
Mr. FRED HALL (Dulwich)

asked the Postmaster-General whether he consulted the National Health Insurance Commissioners before issuing a notice to medical officers informing them that insured Post Office servants would be free to avail themselves of the services of any other doctor?


The Insurance Commissioners had been consulted as to the possibility of their recognising the Post Office medical system as an approved system under Section 15 (4) of the Insurance Act; and as there was at the time some uncertainty as to their decision, it was thought desirable to issue the circular referred to in order that the Post Office medical officers might be acquainted with the exact position of affairs.
