§ 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?
