HC Deb 22 February 1916 vol 80 c585W

asked the Secretary to the Treasury if Miss Mary Macarthur is the only woman representing England on the Committee now investigating the financial position of national health insurance; how many Government Committees she is a member of at the present time; and whether a woman with knowledge of the larger and better-managed approved societies can be added to the Committee?


There are three women members of the Committee. The member in question was not asked to join the Committee as representing England, but on account of her exceptional knowledge of approved society administration, and I am very glad to have secured her services. I have no information in regard to the second part of the question. It is not proposed to vary the composition of the Committee.
