HC Deb 28 July 1949 vol 467 cc2638-9
15. Brigadier Medlicott

asked the Minister of Health what proposals have been approved by him in the last 12 months for providing further accommodation in the area of the East Anglian Regional Hospital Board for juvenile and adult mental defectives.

Mr. Blenkinsop

None, Sir. But my right hon. Friend now has under urgent review a scheme for 100 beds at Little Plumstead Hall, and 25 more have just become available at St. Neots.

Mrs. Leah Manning

In view of the fact that the Minister has promised to make these arrangements quickly would he remove the three mentally defective children from St. Margaret's Hospital, Epping, about which I wrote to him?

Mr. Blenkinsop

That is another question.
