§ 11. Mr. Glossop
asked the Minister of Health the number of persons who received advice, during 1945, from the ante-natal clinic attached to the Howden Public Assistance Institution; and where the clinic will be transferred when the institution is closed down.
§ Mr. Bevan
There is no ante-natal clinic attached to this institution. During 1945, 69 women who were to be admitted to the institution for confinement received antenatal advice from the matron. For other women antenatal advice has been and will be given under special arrangements made with general practitioners and domiciliary midwives.
§ Mr. Glossop
Will the Minister give an assurance that advice on ante-natal matters now being given at this institution will not be terminated until other suitable premises have been found?
