HC Deb 06 May 1913 vol 52 c1869W

asked the Secretary to the Treasury whether he has received any complaints from Selby showing that a free choice of doctors is not enjoyed by insured persons there; and whether Selby is included under the term obscure village?


The answer to the first part of the question is in the negative; the second part does not arise. There has been no suspension of the panel system in the area referred to. I am informed by the Yorkshire (West Riding) Insurance Committee that of eight doctors in the district five have accepted service under the Act, and insured persons have free choice among these five.
