62. Mr. E. J. Williams

asked the Minister of Health whether he will state the names and accommodation of hospitals in Wales; their special functions and the prospects of increasing out-patient, isolation, maternity and general hospital accommodation in the near future?

The Minister of Health (Mr. Elliot)

There are in Wales 213 hospitals and institutions of various kinds, providing a total of 14,326 beds. Further schemes now in progress will provide for 385 further beds. Also, as the hon. Member knows, 800 more beds will be provided by hutted hospitals at Denbigh and Chepstow. I am sending the hon. Member full particulars of the names, accommodation and functions of each of the existing hospitals and also of the further schemes in progress.
