HC Deb 18 November 1926 vol 199 c1945
26. Colonel DAY

asked the Minister of Health whether his attention has been drawn to the conditions existing at the Dover mortuary, where post-mortem examinations are held in a building that is not weather-proof, and where no light warmth, or accommodation of any kind is provided; and will he take such action with the local authorities as will result in the existing state of affairs being remedied?


The answer to the first part of the question is in the negative. I have, however, received a report from the local authority which appears to show that the building in question is reasonably adequate for the purposes for which it is used.

Colonel DAY

Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that the coroner has stated that he has received complaints from every doctor in Dover that the mortuary is insufficient?


I cannot add anything to what I have said.
