HC Deb 05 February 1948 vol 446 c314W
79. Dr. S. Jeger

asked the Minister of Health whether he is aware that in the plebiscite of doctors now being held by the B.M.A., each doctor is required to disclose his identity on the ballot paper; and whether in view of the fact that many doctors interpret this violation of voting secrecy as an attempt to intimidate individual doctors, he will take steps to get a more accurate expression of the opinion of doctors on the question of their co-operation in the new National Health Service.

Mr. Bevan

I would refer my hon. Friend to the answer which I gave last Thursday to my hon. Friend the Member for Peterborough.
