Orders of the Day — National Health Service (18 May 1953)

Dr Santo Jeger: May I ask whether the sub-heading on the outer cover of that pamphlet indicates that it is merely a discussion pamphlet?

Orders of the Day — National Health Service (18 May 1953)

Dr Santo Jeger: I wish first to say—

Orders of the Day — National Health Service (18 May 1953)

Dr Santo Jeger: I wish to say how much we on this side of the Committee welcome the support of the hon. Member for Reigate (Mr. Vaughan-Morgan) in advocating a comprehensive health service, which we have been advocating for many years. When we were pushing the claims for the establishment of a health service in this country, we spoke very much on the lines on which the hon. Member has now spoken. We welcome...

Orders of the Day — National Health Service (18 May 1953)

Dr Santo Jeger: Our Government did take some action, but I would remind the hon. Member that Rome was not built in a day. Everything cannot be done at once; there are limits to what can be done even in a period of office of six or seven years. I wish to add—I am sure that the hon. Member does not welcome my approval —how much I approve of his advocacy of an occupational health service. I do not...

Orders of the Day — National Health Service (18 May 1953)

Dr Santo Jeger: They are a different sort of priorities. The hon. Member for Clitheroe (Mr. Fort) began his speech with what I thought was a cynical question. He wanted to know whether patients were to go to doctors when they felt just a little below par and whether they were to go for minor ailments for which people did not usually expect to go to doctors. I hope that I shall be believed when I say—I...

Orders of the Day — National Health Service Bill (24 Apr 1951)

Dr Santo Jeger: If there is one thing on which I can congratulate the Minister today, it is upon his extreme modesty. In my five or six years in this House, I have not heard a Minister so anxious to share with any of his Ministerial colleagues the largesse which falls upon him from the Chancellor. So I want to tender to him my congratulations, but I noticed that, in the course of his speech, he said a few...

Orders of the Day — National Health Service Bill (24 Apr 1951)

Dr Santo Jeger: The last time it was raised, the number was far more than the number who have sat on the Benches opposite for a considerable number of years. We, on the other hand, have seriously felt that the time of need was not the time to impose a charge—that the time when a person most needs medical help is not the time to make him pay for it. We regarded that as a vital principle and not as a...

Orders of the Day — National Health Service Bill (24 Apr 1951)

Dr Santo Jeger: I regard the provision of spectacles and the provision of dentures as coming within the description of treatment. I am not referring to the operative treatment carried out by a dentist but to the provision of dentures, which I regard as part of the treatment provided by dentists. I thought I had made that clear. We are creating a new class of people who will apply for national assistance. ...

Orders of the Day — National Health Service Bill (24 Apr 1951)

Dr Santo Jeger: I agree, and I am very much obliged to my hon. Friend for reminding me that in the debate on the National Health Service Bill, in which I spoke on this subject, I raised that point myself and then regarded it as a most important point—as I do now. I am objecting now to differentiation, as I objected then. That intervention helps my case and does not hinder it. One of the worst aspects...

Oral Answers to Questions — Ministry of Works: Government Offices (13 Nov 1950)

Dr Santo Jeger: asked the Minister of Works how many schemes for the building of office accommodation, to be leased wholly or partially to Government Departments, have been licensed in London in the past 12 months; and how many new applications for similar buildings are now under consideration.

Orders of the Day — National Health Service (Amendment) Bill: Clause 7. — (Removal of Hardships.) (9 Dec 1949)

Dr Santo Jeger: As one of the few medical Members of this House who is still attempting to follow his profession regularly, I am grateful for the opportunity of saying a word or two on this matter. I could not agree more with the hon. Member for North Dorset (Mr. Byers). Of course the right hon. and gallant Member for the Scottish Universities (Lieut.-Colonel Elliot) followed the line that was expected of...

Orders of the Day — National Health Service (Amendment) Bill: Clause 7. — (Removal of Hardships.) (9 Dec 1949)

Dr Santo Jeger: I did not say that at all. I agree that when there are two preparations, one of which costs less than another, that, other things being equal, one should use the cheaper one. That is self-evident. But we did not get that kind of idea from what was said by the Parliamentary Secretary. What was being suggested was—

Orders of the Day — National Health Service (Amendment) Bill: Clause 7. — (Removal of Hardships.) (9 Dec 1949)

Dr Santo Jeger: I referred to this matter only because it was mentioned in passing by the Parliamentary Secretary. I am prepared to accept what the Minister has said and not pursue it any further. I would point out again that we are discussing a general principle on which we have no details or regulations and it is a little difficult to limit one's field. I have had very considerable experience in the last...

Orders of the Day — Adoption of Children Bill: Clause 3. — (Consent to Adoption.) (5 Dec 1949)

Dr Santo Jeger: We have been told by those who are piloting this Bill through the House that a very delicate balance has been arrived at between the interests of the various parties concerned. It is true that we have arrived at a satisfactory compromise, but I consider that the Amendment moved by my hon. Friend the Member for Dagenham (Mr. Parker) would upset it altogether. His suggestion would be...

Oral Answers to Questions — Ministry of Supply: Building Licence, London House (28 Nov 1949)

Dr Santo Jeger: asked the Minister of Works whether, in view of the need for economy in building, he will review the licences granted to the Dominion Students Hall Trust to build an extension to London House containing a swimming pool, a rifle range and squash courts at a cost of £1,100,000.

Oral Answers to Questions — Ministry of Supply: Building Licence, London House (28 Nov 1949)

Dr Santo Jeger: Is the Minister not aware that this scheme involves the destruction of a good deal of expensive repaired housing accommodation; and will he therefore decline to issue further similar licences until the housing shortage has been considerably relieved?

Orders of the Day — Civil Estimates and Estimates for Revenue Departments, Supplementary Estimates, 1948–49: National Health Service, England and Wales (17 Feb 1949)

Dr Santo Jeger: We have had a series of violently contrasting speeches from hon. Members of the Opposition. The hon. Member for Chippenham (Mr. Eccles) got as near as he could to saying: "Cut these Estimates. I do not care where they are cut, but in the sacred name of our other social services, we must have a cut." True, he said he did not regard that as very good electioneering. Previously we had heard a...

Orders of the Day — Civil Estimates and Estimates for Revenue Departments, Supplementary Estimates, 1948–49: National Health Service, England and Wales (17 Feb 1949)

Dr Santo Jeger: I am not saying that cost is the only factor. What I am saying is that hon. Members opposite talk about cost as being by far the most important factor, and it is of that sort of attitude that I disapprove and that attitude which I condemn and will continue to condemn, and no amount of protest from hon. Members opposite will make any difference. Theirs is a totally different attitude to life...

Orders of the Day — Civil Estimates and Estimates for Revenue Departments, Supplementary Estimates, 1948–49: National Health Service, England and Wales (17 Feb 1949)

Dr Santo Jeger: Certainly, Major Milner. On page 54 there appears: C.—Grants to local health authorities:Grants in respect of health centres; care of mothers and young children. These services have been transferred to the London County Council. The London County Council have set up nine divisional offices with nine divisional administrative officers. They have also appointed a nursing officer in each...
