HC Deb 02 April 1940 vol 359 c33W
Mr. Groves

asked the Minister of Health whether he is aware that at a meeting of medical practitioners of Battersea and Wandsworth held some time since, a resolution was passed to the effect that the terms for the staffing of first-aid posts are not conducive to the public safety; that practitioners in such area are recommended to refuse service under such terms; that the approval by the Central Emergency Committee of the British Medical Association to such terms was deplored; and whether there has been any change in the terms to which exception was taken?

Mr. Elliot

I am aware of the resolution referred to in the first three parts of the Question. As regards the last part, no change has been made in the arrangements for the medical staffing of the first-aid posts, which, I am informed, have been put into operation satisfactorily in each of the two boroughs.
