HC Deb 27 January 1947 vol 432 c581
15. Colonel Wigg

asked the Minister of Works why, in view of the shortage of tubes, he has invited tenders for 300 special beds for use in the Royal Hospital, Chelsea, when there are available large numbers of surplus beds which were manufactured during the war.

Mr. Tomlinson

The standard wartime bed does not fit in to the ward cubicles of the hospital nor is it sufficiently wide for the needs of the pensioners.
