HC Deb 19 February 1948 vol 447 c1309
6. Mr. Bowden

asked the Minister of Health if he will consider the immediate allocation of a supply of streptomycin to the Leicester hospitals; and if he is aware that the nearest supply to this populous district is a considerable distance away.

Mr. Bevan

I regret that owing to the limited supply of streptomycin available at present, it is not possible to add to the number of hospitals at which treatment with this drug can be given. As supplies improve, the needs of Leicester will be borne in mind.
