HC Deb 28 June 1951 vol 489 c1560
23. Mr. Wood

asked the Minister of Health what charge can be made under his regulations on a dependant for the maintenance of a patient in a mental hospital.

Mr. Marquand

None, Sir, unless there were an agreement between the parties for special accommodation under Section 4 or Section 5 of the National Health Service Act, 1946.

Mr. Wood

If I send the right hon. Gentleman details of a case in which a charge has been made, would he be kind enough to look into it?

Mr. Marquand

Yes, Sir.
