§ Mr. BARNES
asked the Secretary for Scotland if his attention has been called to a new set of regulations issued by the Glasgow Parish Council in regard to the visitations of patients at Stobhill Hospital by their friends; if he is aware that only half-an-hour is now allowed; and will he take steps to got such regulations relaxed?
The SECRETARY for SCOTLAND (Mr. McKinnon Wood)
After medical inquiry as to the former arrangements, the rule referred to received the sanction of the Local Government Board for Scotland, that sanction being provisional and for six months only. If the rule is found to cause hardship, it will be re-considered.
