HC Deb 15 May 1924 vol 173 c1521
9. Mr. BAKER

asked the Minister of Pensions whether it is proposed to close the gymnasium at the Bulinga Street Neurological Clinic; if so, what steps will be taken to provide facilities for remedial exercises; whether he is aware that administrative officers, medical men, have been appointed to exercise control at this clinic, though they have no neurological experience; and whether, in view of the difficulty in dealing with cases of war neuroses, he will arrange that all medical officers in this clinic shall be men who are experts in the treatment of neurological diseases?


I am glad to assure my hon. Friend that there is no intention of closing the gymnasium at the Bulinga Street Clinic. On the contrary, it is proposed to make increased use of it. The control of the neurological section of the clinic has been, is, and will continue to be undertaken by an experienced neurologist. As regards the last part of the question, none but neurological specialists are, or will be, employed in the special treatment of war neuroses.
