HC Deb 16 March 1922 vol 151 cc2339-40

asked the Minister of Pensions how many hospitals and treatment centres his Department are still maintaining in the County of London; where they are situated; how many men are still under treatment, by orders of his Department, at hospitals and centres in London; and if there is any immediate prospect of closing down any of the same?


There are five hospitals and nine special medical clinics maintained by and under the direct control of the Ministry within the area of the administrative County of London, of which I am circulating particulars in the OFFICIAL REPORT. In addition, the Ministry is making use of some 50 civil hospitals and treatment centres at an agreed charge for each patient. The number at present receiving treatment at these institutions is approximately 21,000. I am afraid that there is no immediate prospect of closing down any of the institutions under the control of the Ministry in the London County area, though that possibility is constantly kept in view.

The following is the statement:

(1) Addresses of Ministry of Pensions Hospitals.

(2) Addresses of Ministry of Pensions Special Medical Clinics.
