HC Deb 06 July 1964 vol 698 c27W
Mr. Peter Emery

asked the Minister of Health how many supernumerary medical jobs outside general practice, paid out of the general pool for doctors' salaries, were carried out by doctors in 1948, 1952, 1956, and 1960 to 1963; and what were the costs for each of these years.

Mr. Barber

I have no statistics of appointments and services outside general practice which are remunerated from the pool, and pool payments are not classified so as to show such work separately. Total pool payments by other authorities than Executive Councils to general practitioners in Great Britain were as follows:—

1948–49 (9 months) 1.8
1952–53 2.6
1956–57 3.0
1960–61 4.2
1961–62 5.1
1962–03. 4.9
