HC Deb 13 May 1915 vol 71 c1835W

asked the Under-Secretary for War whether the Cardiff Mental Hospital has been taken over by the War Office for the accommodation of wounded soldiers; and, if so, whether he can say to where the patients that were being treated in the hospital have been transferred; and whether arrangements have been made for their relatives to visit them?


The Cardiff Mental Hospital is being taken over. The patients have been moved, under arrangements initiated by the Board of Control with the approval of the Home Secretary, to the following seven asylums:—Gloucester, Hereford, Monmouth, Newport, Glamorgan, Carmarthen, Brecon and Radnor. In reply to the last part of the question, the relatives will, of course, have facilities for visiting.
