HC Deb 25 November 1920 vol 135 c665W

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?


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.
