HC Deb 06 March 1941 vol 369 c1048W
Lieut.-Colonel Mayhew

asked the Minister of Health whether medical benefit similar to that under the National Health Insurance Act, but on a non-contributory basis, will be provided for the dependants of those men in the armed Forces, who were themselves compulsorily insured persons?

Mr. E. Brown

This matter has been frequently considered by the responsible Ministers and I cannot add anything to the full statement made by my right hon. and gallant Friend the Member for North Midlothian (Lieut.-Colonel Colville) when he was Secretary of State for Scotland, on 23rd April, 1940. I am sending a copy of this statement to my hon. and gallant Friend.
