I am proposing to introduce at an early date a Bill under which the cost of medical benefit which has hitherto been met by a direct Exchequer grant over and above the normal statutory proportion will be transferred to approved societies in respect of the period ending on 31st December, 1923, and will be met out of their accumulated funds, in which are included the surpluses disclosed at the first valuation and not used for the provision of additional benefits. The Bill will not entail any changes in the control of medical benefit.
