HC Deb 15 June 1950 vol 476 c542
37. Mr. E. Martin Smith

asked the Minister of Health when it is proposed to reopen the St. George's Hospital, Long Leys Road, Lincoln.

Mr. Bevan

The Regional Hospital Board hope that it may be possible to bring part of the hospital into use by the end of the present year.

Mr. Smith

Is the Minister aware that when this hospital was taken over again in November, 1948, there were also taken over two clerks, four or five boiler and maintenance men and also, about that time, a steward or attendant and an assistant matron? Is he aware that, because of that, the hospital has been spending—I am told on good authority— approximately £10,000 a year, for which there has been no return whatsoever? Is he also aware that—

Mr. Speaker

The length of supplementaries is getting intolerable.
