§ Mr. NAYLOR
asked the Minister of Health whether his attention has been drawn to the objections raised by the issue of the new incapacity certificates (form Med. 40b and form Med. 40c,), on the reverse side of which is a form of death certificate; and, if so, whether, seeing that these certificates are handled by the patients, he will take steps to have the form of death certificate issued separately?
Mr. W. A. JENKINS
asked the Minister of Health if he is aware that the new issues of insurance incapacity certificates form Med. 40b and form Med. 40c contain on the reverse side a form of death certificate, and, in view of the pain, anxiety and distress which might be caused to the patient and his family, will 289W he give instructions for these objection able forms to be immediately withdrawn?
§ Sir W. JOYNSON-HICKS
The form was prepared after consultation with representatives of approved societies and insurance practitioners, but I am referring ing to the approved societies consultative council for further consideration.
