HC Deb 29 January 1962 vol 652 c55W
65. Mr. Wade

asked the Minister of Pensions and National Insurance whether reciprocal arrangements as regards National Health Service benefits are provided by the Commonwealth countries for visitors from Britain.

Mr. Boyd-Carpenter

New Zealand legislation enables all visitors from this country (except seamen) to obtain the various health benefits provided by that legislation. There also is a limited agreement with Malta under which anyone who is drawing industrial injury benefit from the United Kingdom may receive there any medical treatment the need for which arises from his injury. In addition, our agreement with Australia, by helping people from this country to qualify for an Australian pension, enables them to qualify for the health benefits which are attached to Australian pensions.
