§ 27. Mr. McGOVERN
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if he will state the number of children under 18 years of age who are in Robroyston Sanatorium, Mearnskirk Sanatorium and Bellfield Sanatorium; and in how many cases the fathers are unemployed?
§ The SECRETARY of STATE for SCOTLAND (Mr. William Adamson)
I am informed that the numbers of patients under 18 years in Robroyston Hospital, Mearnskirk Hospital and Bellfield Sanatorium are 144, 443 and 44 respectively. I regret that the information asked in the latter part of the question is not available.
§ Mr. ADAMSON
If the hon. Gentleman will make the suggestion to get the information, I shall be glad to consider it.
§ Mr. McGOVERN
As I understand it, it is part of the right hon. Gentleman's duty to get the information. It is not for me.
