Proposed Medical Socialist Organisation. A meeting was held at the National Labour Club on Sept. 21st to discuss the formation of a medical socialist organisation. Dr. M. I. Finucane, J.P., was called to the chair, and Dr. C. W. Brook (London), convener, read letters of apology for absence from Dr. Drummond Shiels, M.P., Under Secretary for the Colonies, Mr. Somerville Hastings, M.P., and Dr. Stella Churchill, L.C.C. Dr. Brook said he had received a letter from Dr. Ewald Fabian, of Berlin, informing him that an International Union of Socialist Physicians was about to be created; strong national medical socialist bodies were in existence, and regret was felt that in England there was no similar organisation. The creation of a British organisation was, Dr. Brook continued, justified on several grounds: (1) as a means of pressing for the establishment of a properly organised national health service, (2) as a means of contact through the International Union with other national organisations, (3) as a means of devising legislation for the benefit of the health of the workers and of bringing pressure on the authorities to carry such legislation into effect, (4) as a means of propagating socialism among the medical prof ession-he would admit students as associates and thus carry the campaign into the medical schools, (5) as a means of working as an organised body of socialists within existing medico-political organisations, and (6) as a means whereby medical men and women who for economic reasons cannot join a local Labour Party or I.L.P. branch, can become affiliated members of the Party. In the discussion which followed, Dr. F. G. Bushnell (Plymouth) suggested that such an organisation would assist the workers’ health committees now in process of formation by the I.L.P. Dr. Menon promised the organisation the support of Indian medical practitioners in this country, Dr. P. Macdonald (York) said that while he was in favour of the extension and improvement of the existing voluntary hospital system, he would support the establishment of such an organisation. Miss Esther Rickards, M.S., L.C.C., thought it would prove useful to Labour members of com- mittees of municipal hospitals, and to the medical advisory committee of the Labour party. A resolution in the following terms : " That the members of the medical profession whose political views are in agreement with those of the Labour party and with the ideals of socialism be organised as a political body and that a committee be formed to draw up a constitution for this body and that this draft be submitted to a meeting of all those medical men and women known to hold political views in accordance with those of the Labour party and with the ideals of Socialism " was proposed and carried unanimously.
