HC Deb 14 October 1943 vol 392 c1071W
Sir H. Morris-Jones

asked the Minister of Health when the White Paper on the Government's proposals for a National Health Service will be available?

Mr. E. Brown

I have nothing to add to the reply which was given by my right hon. Friend the Minister without Portfolio on 21st September last.

Sir E. Graham-Little

asked the Minister of Health whether, before publishing the promised White Paper on Health Services, he will afford opportunity to the Committee appointed at his request to represent the medical profession to discuss these services, not on the basis of any preconceived plan, but from the ground in accordance with the undertaking given by him in these terms in March, 1943, which has not hitherto been kept, and the continued breach of which has caused resentment in the medical profession?

Mr. Brown

I cannot accept my hon. Friend's version of what has so far taken place. I intend to adhere to the procedure which I announced at the outset, and which I explained to my hon. Friend in my reply to his Question on 26th May last.
