The mattili jffc hung up for a long time, and then an offer came from the Minister to pay £7 7s per day. The local branch of the Medical Association considered and' agreed to accept the offer, provided the Government paid for petrol used, and that any medical men put to the expense of hiring cars should be compensated. It is stated that the doctors here have agreed to work on the block system if there is a recurrence of the epidemic, and they have also agreed to standardise medicines required by sufferers in order to simplify the treatment.
