HC Deb 11 December 1945 vol 417 cc183-4
3. Squadron-Leader Segal

asked the Secretary of State for War on what grounds the use of physical violence by nursing orderlies at the psycho-neurotic centre of the 12th British General Hospital, M.E.F., has been permitted upon patients who are convalescent from tuberculosis; whether he is aware that several patients have already had their tubercular condition aggravated as a result of their treatment at this hospital; and what has been the result of his inquiry into the allegations against this hospital, details of which have already been supplied to him.

Mr. Lawson

I am not aware that the conditions are as stated, but I have made inquiries and when the results are received I will write to my hon. and gallant Friend.
