§ 33. Mr. Foster
asked the Minister of Pensions whether he is now in a position to make a further statement on the question of mental cases in local hospitals who are having to be maintained by relations or the local authorities.
§ The Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Pensions (Mr. Paling)
I regret that my right hon. Friend is not at present able to add to the reply given to my hon. Friend on this subject on 16th March.
§ Mr. Paling
I cannot say definitely. This Question has caused a lot of in-quiries, both wide and detailed, but I hope that the answer may be given very soon.
