§ 83. Mr. GODFREY LOCKER-LAMPSON
asked how many beds for sanatorium benefit have been provided under the National Insurance Act in hospitals for infectious diseases or in isolation wards connected therewith?
§ The PRESIDENT of the LOCAL GOVERNMENT BOARD (Mr. Burns)
My right hon. Friend has asked me to reply to this question. The number of beds in isolation hospitals which have been approved by the Local Government Board under the National Insurance Act for the treatment of tuberculosis is 1,732.
§ Mr. G. LOCKER-LAMPSON
Would the right hon. Gentleman say what steps he proposes to take supposing an epidemic breaks out and those beds are wanted?
