HC Deb 01 April 1957 vol 568 c11
6. Mr. Hornby

asked the Minister of Health how many general hospital beds and maternity beds were available in general practitioner units at the end of 1956; if there were more or less than a year previously; and by how much.

Mr. Vosper

This information is not yet available for 1956. At the end of 1955 the numbers of staffed beds of these kinds in England and Wales were 6,714 and 2,670, respectively, 60 and 190 more than at the end of 1954.
