HC Deb 06 August 1919 vol 119 cc394-5W

asked the Minister of Health whether his attention has been called to the complaints that many tuberculosis patients in sanatoria and similar institutions under the control of local authorities still suffer from the severe regime imposed by the War and food control as to food and nourishment; and whether he will cause such inquiries and alterations to be made as will ensure to such patients every consideration and help?


I am aware that complaints had been made from time to time in respect of food and other matters in sanatoria and similar institutions, and I am now inquiring into a particular case that has just been brought to my notice. I am advised that where the official dietary scales are properly carried out they are found suitable, but if the lion. Member will give me the details of any particular place where he has information that the food is inadequate, I will gladly have it investigated and reported on.
