§ Mr. CAIRNS
asked the Minister of Health if he is aware of the long waiting period of war pensioners in getting into hospitals for treatment as in-patients; and, if so, will he press for the extension of hospital accommodation for such pensioners?
§ Mr. MACPHERSON
I have been asked to take this question. I am glad to inform my hon. Friend that recent extensions of in-patient accommodation have, to a large extent, removed the difficulties which, unfortunately, existed some months ago. Further accommodation is being provided which should enable all demands for in-patient treatment to be met without delay.
