§ Mr. CREAN
asked the Chief Secretary for Ireland whether he is aware that the salaries of the panel doctors in the county of Cork are more than six months in arrear; if he can state who is responsible for this neglect; and, in view of the fact that any discontent on the part of the doctors for such neglect may cause inconvenience to the insured persons, will he insist on the Irish Insurance Commissioners having these liabilities discharged more regularly?
My right hon. Friend is informed by the Irish Insurance Commissioners that the accounts of the doctors in the area referred to who have undertaken to furnish the necessary certificates to insured persons have been settled up to the 31st March last. Payment up to the 30th June will be made as soon as the necessary particulars have been received.
