§ 58. Mr. Carmichael
asked the Lord Privy Seal what statements have been issued through Her Majesty's Ambassador in Washington concerning the National Health Service, in reply to statements made by British medical practitioners in the United States of America.
§ Mr. Heath
No such statements have been issued. Her Majesty's Embassy in Washington and the British Information Services in the United States have, however, issued and continue to issue material on the National Health Service as they do on other British institutions in the normal course of their information activities. During the past two years they have also issued material specifically designed to counter inaccurate statements about the National Health Service current in the United States.
