§ 28. Brigadier Rayner
asked the Minister of Health what is the estimated annual cost of the clothing which needy patients are allowed to keep on discharge from hospital; what determines need in this connection; and what individual items of clothing are included in the issue.
§ Brigadier Rayner
When will the right hon. Gentleman realise that the ever-increasing cost of the Health Services is hastening the collapse of the British economy?
§ Mr. Joynson-Hicks
Can the right hon. Gentleman say whether the estimated cost is greater or less than the costs incurred for the same service while the hospitals were under private enterprise?
