HC Deb 30 July 1957 vol 574 c177W
Mr. Lagden

asked the Minister of Health whether he will arrange for general medical practitioners to be paid monthly instead of quarterly, as at present, without having to make a special case on grounds of difficulty or hardship.

Mr. Vaughan-Morgan

Yes. In agreement with the General Medical Services Committee of the British Medical Association I propose that as from the quarter beginning in October Executive Councils should be enabled to do this after consultation with the Local Medical Committee. The necessary amending regulations will be laid before the House as soon as possible.
