§ 30. Lord Malcolm Douglas-Hamilton
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland why the maternity unit in Belfort Hospital, Fort William, is not in use.
The hospital authorities have not yet been able to provide accommodation for the nursing staff required, but they are doing their utmost to make temporary arrangements for this purpose.
§ Lord Malcolm Douglas-Hamilton
Can the right hon. Gentleman say whether this shortage of accommodation applies to any other hospital in Scotland?
Yes, Sir. I know of other hospitals where there is quite a marked shortage of accommodation for nurses.
