HC Deb 21 February 1952 vol 496 cc408-9
22. Mr. Alfred Bossom

asked the Minister of Health whether his attention has been drawn to the large increase in the numbers in the administrative staffs in relation to the numbers of beds in the voluntary hospitals since they were taken over by the National Health Service; and if he will investigate this to see if any advantage is gained by this increase, or whether it cannot be materially reduced.

Mr. Crookshank

Yes, Sir. A review of these staffs is in progress, and steps are being taken to secure reductions where the review shows the need for it.
