HC Deb 20 April 1939 vol 346 c485
27. Mr. Pilkington

asked the Minister of Health whether the plans for the new maternity unit at Whiston county hospital have yet been passed; and when building is to begin?

Mr. Bernays

No proposals have yet been submitted to my right hon. Friend, but he is communicating with the county council in the matter.

Mr. Pilkington

As the area which these hospitals serve has had a fourfold increase in population in recent years, will the hon. Gentleman expedite this matter, which is very urgent?

Mr. Bernays

Yes, Sir, I will do what I can.
