9. Mr. Glossop

asked the Minister of Health what arrangements are being made for a continuance of a ward for maternity cases in the Howden rural district, in view of the proposal to close the Howden Public Assistance Institution, which at present houses the maternity ward for the district; and the number of births in the Howden Public Assistance Institution from 1st January to 3rst December, 1945.

Mr. Bevan

No date has yet been fixed for the closure of the institution, and the Council's arrangements for providing alternative accommodation are not yet complete. The answer to the last part of the Question is 75.
