SIR,—The Times reports a meeting of the B.M.A.* when no less than 370 representative members assembled from all parts of Great Britain unanimously (mark that word) voted against the acceptance of service under the National Health Service Act, 1946, as it now stands. Has not the time come when Mr. Attlee should call for Mr. Bevan's resignation? I would suggest that this ought to be accomplished before Parliament re-assembles—or at any rate before the Doctors' plebiscite on the 31st. If you would publish this letter the views of your readers could be well aired before that date.—Yours, &c.,
