HC Deb 27 May 1976 vol 912 cc333-4W
Mr. Kenneth Clarke

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services when he expects to receive a copy of the report from the working group set up by the European Commission to examine the question of EEC regulations on the provision of medical treatment to nationals of member countries throughout the Community and, in particular, the position of British self-employed and free medical treatment on visits to Europe.

Dr. Owen

I understand that no date has been fixed for completion of discussions on this complex subject. Comprehensive consideration will necessarily take some time but the United Kingdom representatives are urging the need to complete the work as soon as possible.
