HC Deb 11 November 1937 vol 328 cc1888-9W
Sir R. Rankin

asked the Minister of Health what arrangements will be made for the financing of the proposed post graduation course for insurance doctors; to what extent the necessary cost will be borne by the insurance fund; and what complaints he has received about such procedure from the various insurance committees?

Sir K. Wood

With regard to the first two parts of the question, payments in respect of fees and expenses incurred by insurance doctors in attending approved post-graduate courses will be made out of the unclaimed proceeds of sales of National Health Insurance stamps, with the aid of the normal Exchequer grant. As regards the last part of the question, I have received no complaints from Insurance Committees as to the source from which the courses are to be financed, but certain administrative questions are under discussion with the National Association of Insurance Committees.
