HC Deb 05 March 1962 vol 655 c13
15. Mr. Holland

asked the Minister of Health what progress is being made with his campaign to ease hospital routines.

The Minister of Health (Mr. Enoch Powell)

Results are not capable of precise measurement, but the response has been encouraging and further progress in all the fields concerned will be continuously watched.
