HC Deb 26 October 1932 vol 269 c994W

asked the Minister of Health the names of the members of the consultative committee of approved societies which were consulted on the National Health Insurance and Contributory Pensions Act recently passed?


The proposals which were embodied in the recent National Health Insurance and Contributory Pensions Bill were submitted to the Consultative Council on National Health Insurance (Approved Societies Work) as a whole. The proposals were approved by the Council as a whole and the consultation did not take the form of eliciting the views of each individual member, though all members were at liberty to express their views at the meeting when the proposals were under consideration. The proceedings of the Consultative Council have always been treated as confidential.
