HC Deb 17 February 1949 vol 461 c186W
36. Brigadier Thorp

asked the Minister of Health why his Department have refused to allow Norham and Islandshire district medical officer to represent them on the Berwick-on-Tweed hospital management committee; and why the council have no direct representation on the committee.

Mr. Bevan

Under the National Health Service Act, 1946, local authorities as such are not given representation on hospital management committees and the question does not, therefore, arise.
