HC Deb 23 November 1916 vol 87 cc1645-6W

asked the Comptroller of the Household, as representing the National Health Insurance Commissioners, whether he is aware that the London Insurance Committee declines to pay the balance due to practitioners under their agreements in respect of the year 1915 unless a special form of receipt is signed relinquishing their legal rights under the Regulations and otherwise; and whether he will take action to remedy this state of affairs, which is causing irritation and dissatisfaction to the doctors?


primâ facie it does not appear unreasonable that if payment is being made to practitioners of the balance of the remuneration due to them in respect of any particular year, they should be expected to give a receipt in full dis- charge of such balance. I am, however, making inquiry into the precise form of receipt and discharge adopted by the committee.
