HC Deb 19 July 1926 vol 198 c903W
Lieut. - Commander KENWORTHY

asked the Minister of Health if he will give a list of the names of medical men employed by the Ministry, other than whole-time staff, and what salaries they receive?


Colonel L. W. Harrison is the only part-time member of the medical staff of the Ministry. His salary is £1,500 a year. Medical men are employed by the Department from time to time, as occasion requires, as Part-Time Referees, to assist the Regional Medical Staff in dealing with cases of insured persons referred by approved societies for examination and advice as to incapacity for work. They receive no appointment, salary or guarantee of employment, and are remunerated by a fee of two guineas for each session.
