§ 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.
