He didn't know much about them, if his comments about "sweeping cuts" are anything to go by.

Sweeping generalisation, more like.

Perhaps Tait was on a visit to London, or maybe the Pall Mall Gazette reporter met him in Birmingham? As a noted women's surgeon, they might have actively sought his opinion.
