HC Deb 15 April 1965 vol 710 c239W
Mr. Hattersley

asked the Minister of Health if he is aware that some general practitioners who were unwilling to offer their resignation from the National Health Service during the recent pay dispute have been subjected to pressure by their colleagues; and if he will seek power to protect doctors from such coercion in future disputes.

Mr. K. Robinson

I would deprecate any attempts at improper coercion but I do not think this is a matter appropriate for legislation.
