HC Deb 08 November 1945 vol 415 cc1571-2W
Sir J. Lucas

asked the Minister of Health if he is aware that local relieving officers appear to be unaware of the facilities for free medical treatment for returned internees from the Far East; and if he will issue instructions forthwith so that these ex-internees may obtain the help to which they are entitled.

Mr. Bevan

I am obliged to the hon. and gallant Member for calling attention to this matter. I am taking action to supplement the arrangements already made, though I understand that in most cases they are working adequately.
