HC Deb 06 March 1941 vol 369 c1045W
Dr. Morgan

asked the Minister of Health whether he will investigate the case of a doctor, whose name will be given to him, who volunteered for service in the Royal Naval Medical Service in September, 1939, and later, in anticipation of obtaining a commission, left his practice, which had depreciated by reason of heavy air raids in the district, and obtained temporary professional work in another part of the country, who is still in civil practice, his original practice having been lost because the local emergency committee refused to arrange for the practice to be cared for under the Protection of Practices Scheme, on the ground that he was neither with the Forces nor in national work, notwithstanding his pending application for a commission in the Royal Naval Medical Service?

Mr. E. Brown

If my hon. Friend will send me particulars of the case he has in mind, I will make inquiries.
