HC Deb 24 October 1918 vol 110 c962W

asked the Minister of Reconstruction (1) if the proposed Bill to establish a Ministry of Health has now obtained a new title; whether the proposal has been materially altered; and whether the new Bill has been submitted to any Member of the House; and (2) if the proposed Ministry of Health and Local Government Bill abolishes the National Commissioners for Wales, on what grounds has this deprivation of national right been decided upon; and whether the Members for Wales and Mon-mouth will be consulted before the Government abolishes a body whose administration has been such a marked success?


I will answer these two questions together. I cannot undertake to anticipate the terms of the Bill; and as regards the last part of question No. 128, I would refer the hon. Member to the reply which I gave to him on the 22nd April.
