HC Deb 02 April 1940 vol 359 cc31-2W
Mr. Groves

asked the Minister of Health whether further consideration has how been given to the representations made by the Medical Practitioners Union, a large number of insurance committees and others, urging the need of the provision of medical benefit for dependants of those engaged on war work; and whether they Will be acceded to, having regard to the inability of such dependants for the most part to afford necessary medical treatment?

Mr. Elliot

I assume that the hon. Member has in mind the question of the provision of medical treatment for the dependants of men serving in the Forces. I am not yet in a position to make a statement on this matter.
