HC Deb 09 February 1973 vol 850 c199W
Mr. Michael Cocks

asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry if, in view of the adverse health effects of insurance which creates a financial incentive, in the form of a no claims bonus, for delaying or avoiding admission to hospital, he will seek powers to require insurance companies advertising such policies to refrain from so doing.

Sir G. Howe

No. Many considerations may affect an individual's decision whether to seek hospital treatment.
