HC Deb 05 August 1943 vol 391 c2433
16. Mr. Muff

asked the Minister of Health how many tuberculosis X-ray apparatus are in operation in the county of Yorkshire; and in what places?

Miss Horsbrugh

I assume that my hon. Friend refers to the units for mass miniature radiography now in course of manufacture and allocation to selected tuberculosis authorities. No unit has yet been sent to Yorkshire, but the city of Leeds at present stands next on the allocation list, and another unit will later be assigned to the city of Sheffield.

Mr. Muff

Is the hon. Lady aware of the profound dissatisfaction at the continued neglect of Kingston-upon-Hull, which is a distressed area, suffers under raids, and is in need of such an instrument? Leeds has had one for a considerable time.
