STATE MEDICAL SERVICE. I REPORTED IMPORTANT NEW I SCHEME. It was stated on excellent authority in London during the week that a State medical service would be established in the country within five years. "I am in a position to state," said a well-known doctor, "that a Govern- ment Committee is at present consider- ing this question in private, and is actually preparing plans for the new departure. It is an open secret in medi- cal circles that Mr. Lloyd George 'knuckled down' to the doctors with a view to getting the Insurance Act into good working order, knowing that afterwards it would be an easy matter to introduce a State medical service costing considerably less than the pre- sent system. It is possible that the State will also establish central dispensaries in the large industrial communities, but will leave the dispensing of drugs in rural centres to private enterprise." According to the same informant Mr. Lloyd George had engaged doctors to work Liverpool Insurance Act area, and it was this fact which induced the doc- tors to accept finally the terms which had enabled most of them to buy motor cars at the expense of the State.
