HC Deb 05 July 1934 vol 291 cc2081-2W

asked the Minister of Health whether he is aware of the movement both in the medical profession and also among friendly societies and national health insurance organisations in support of the setting up of a complete medical service for the whole of the population of the country; and whether he will favourably consider the appointment either of a parliamentary or of a departmental committee to explore the situation and to report as to the desirability of introducing legislation for the creation of such a service?


Proposals on this subject have been brought to my notice and are being examined, but I am not at present in a position to indicate what action, if any, the Government may decide to take in relation to them.
