§ Mr. ROWNTREE
asked the President of the Local Government Board whether he has received a communication from the York National Health Insurance Committee calling attention to the impossibility of finding suitable local accommodation for sanatorium patients, and urging the immediate sanctioning of the City Council's Gate Helmsley scheme; whether he is aware there is a long list of waiting patients; and what he proposes to do in the matter, in view of the fact that the council is unable to find another site?
§ Mr. HAYES FISHER
The answer to the first part of the question is in the affirmative. One of the medical inspectors of my Department has recently conferred with representatives of the town council on the subject of further provision for the treatment of tuberculosis in York, and his report is now under consideration.
