asked the Minister of Health why he has refused the application of Mr. John Smith of 40, Greystone Road, Carlisle, for inclusion in the list of medical auxiliaries kept by the Minister under Section 3 (4) of the National Health Service (Medical Auxiliaries) Regulations, 1954; whether he is aware that Mr. John Smith has practised as a chiropodist in Carlisle for 22 years; and if he will now reconsider his decision in the light of the numerous professional and other testimonials submitted to him concerning Mr. Smith's ability as a practitioner.

I will look at this case again in the light of the additional information sent to my hon. Friend the Parliamentary Secretary, and will write to my hon. Friend as soon as I have been able to do so.

I thank my right hon. and learned Friend for his decision in view of the fact that this case is one of great personal hardship.
