HC Deb 11 July 1946 vol 425 cc550-1
7. Mr. Sidney Shephard

asked the Minister of Health when the Nottinghamshire County Council will be supplied with a mass radiography plant.

Mr. Key

I would remind the hon. Member of my right hon. Friend's general reply to him of 6th June last. My right hon. Friend cannot say at what dates each new unit becoming available will be allocated, but he will keep this county well in mind.

Mr. Shephard

Are these plants allocated on a population basis? If so, as this county has a population of over half a million, it should be entitled to early consideration.

Mr. Key

That will be a material factor in giving consideration to the allocation.

Mr. Beechman

Is it intended to issue them in each county?

Mr. Key

It is intended to issue them to give a general service to the country as a whole as soon as they become available.
