HC Deb 01 December 1948 vol 458 cc188-9W
Sir E. Graham-Little

asked the Minister of Health if he is aware that his directive to Executive Councils to the effect that it was not his intention that payments from the Inducement Fund should be made in cases where difficulty could be met by a fixed annual payment will, in fact, result in a general lowering of the capitation grant; and whether he will now withdraw this directive, and allow such payments to be met from the Inducement Fund.

Mr. Bevan

I see no reason to alter these arrangements.
