§ 25. Mr. Brian Parkyn
asked the Minister of Health what was the reason for closing a 13-bed maternity ward recently at Bedford General Hospital; and how many expectant mothers have been denied the facilities of a hospital confinement because of this closure.
§ Mr. Parkyn
I thank my hon. Friend for his reply. Is he aware that there has been considerable unrest in the Bedford area concerning the supply of maternity wards? Will he see that everything is done to ensure that any deficiences are made good?
