§ Mr. A. SHORT
asked the Minister of Health if his attention has been drawn to the fact that, within the past month, two hospital probationers have been reported at inquests as found drowned, one in the Thames and one in the Clyde; and if he will have some inquiry made as to the conditions of service, hours of work, etc., at the hospital for Sick Children, Great Ormond Street, from which institution Miss Thyra Pound disappeared?
§ Sir A. MOND
I have made inquiries from the hospital for sick children and find nothing to indicate that Miss Pound's death was in any way connected with her hours of work or the other conditions of service at the hospital. I have no information with regard to the Scottish case to which the hon. Member refers.
