HC Deb 16 March 1951 vol 485 c209W
Brigadier Smyth

asked the Minister of National Insurance what is the position of a general practitioner under the new Tuberculosis Benefits Scheme of 1st March, 1951.

Dr. Summerskill

The new Regulations, like the Industrial Injuries Act under which they are made, only apply to persons in insurable employment. As general practitioners as such are not so employed the Regulations will not apply to them.
