asked the Minister of Labour whether he is aware that few members of recruiting boards are appointed in the district in which they practise, but to boards elsewhere, with the result that time and petrol are wasted in travel; and what action is contemplated to prevent this waste?

I am not aware that the position is as stated by the hon. Member. Except in London, where special considerations apply, the panels from which members of medical boards are drawn are composed of practitioners normally residing in the districts served by the boards.
