§ 23. Colonel DAY
asked the Minister of Health whether his attention has been drawn to the complaint made by the coroner at an inquest held on Horace Henry Phillips at Isleworth to the effect that there had been slackness in preparing the patient for an operation at the Brentford Guardians' West Middlesex Hospital; and whether he has taken any action?
§ The MINISTER of HEALTH (Mr. Chamberlain)
Yes, Sir. The hon. Member is no doubt aware that the slackness to which the coroner drew attention was found not to be a contributory cause of death. The medical superintendent has taken steps which should be effective in securing proper administration in the future, and I do not propose to take any further action.
