§ Mr. JOWETT
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he is aware of the number of persons employed as collectors for doctors who will be deprived of their employment if the National Insurance Bill is passed by Parliament; whether he will make it an obligation on the part of local health committees in arranging their financial relations with medical practitioners and surgeons to arrange also to compensate their collectors for loss of employment; and, if not, whether he intends to 816 leave the collectors referred to without means of support for themselves and their families?
Mr. McKINNON WOOD
I am afraid I cannot undertake on behalf of my right hon. Friend to introduce into the Bill this additional complication in the relations between the local health committees and the doctors.
