HC Deb 27 July 1933 vol 280 c2767
44. Mr. GROVES

asked the Minister of Health if he will agree to the publication of the whole of the correspondence relating to the appointment of a consulting engineer for the Board of Control in connection with the installation of heating apparatus in the extensions to the West Ham Mental Hospital?

The MINISTER of HEALTH (Sir Hilton Young)

The correspondence between the Board of Control and the West Ham Borough Council as to the appointment of a consulting engineer in connection with the extension of the West Ham Mental Hospital consists of two letters which refer to this matter incidentally, and give no support to the suggestion that the appointment was made under pressure from the Board of Control. I am sending the hon. Member copies of the letters, but I see no reason for their publication.


May I ask the right hon. Gentleman where he finds anything about "pressure" in the question? I said nothing about pressure. I asked him about the invitation from the Board of Control. I did not say there was pressure. It was an invitation that was accepted.


I had some reason to think the assurance might be useful to the hon. Member.


Thank you.
