§ 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.
