§ Mr. WILLIAM THORNE
asked the President of the Local Government Board if he is aware that Mr. Weeks stated at the last meeting of the Lewisham Union Board of Guardians that he could prove that Dr. Toogood, medical superintendent of the infirmary, was obliged to give whole time; whether, seeing that he recently stated that Dr. Toogood was not a full-time officer, he will cause further inquiry to be made; and whether the Local Government Board sanction medical officers using the status gained by their public service to practice on behalf of companies undertaking workmen's compensation insurance and devoting Sundays to this employment?
§ Mr. HERBERT LEWIS
I am aware of Mr. Weeks' statement, but, on looking into the matter again, I can only say that Dr. Toogood's position seems to be as -stated in the reply to my hon. Friend's previous question on the 2nd June.
