HC Deb 03 December 1931 vol 260 c1252
63. Mr. TINKER

asked the Minister of Health whether his attention has been drawn to the serious overcrowding at the Lincoln county hospital; and whether he is taking any steps in the matter?


I have not received any recent information but I have, in any case, no authority to interfere with the administration of a voluntary hospital.

64. Mr. C. BROWN

asked the Minister of Health if there is any co-ordination between the public and the voluntary hospitals in Lincoln; and if he can state the number of beds vacant in the public hospital or infirmary during each week in the month of October and the month of November?


I understand that five members of the city council have been co-opted on to the committee of the voluntary hospital. I have no information as to the second part of the question.
