HC Deb 12 March 1957 vol 566 c168W
Mr. Owen

asked the Minister of Health if he will make a statement showing the countries that offer a reciprocal service to British citizens similar to that offered by our National Health Service; and what steps are at present being taken to extend this service to other countries for our people.

Mr. Vosper

We have a Convention with Sweden whereby its health services are available to all British nationals, including tourists. This Convention was signed in June last and is expected to be ratified shortly. A similar Convention with Norway is awaiting signature and discussions with other countries are being sought whenever possible.
