§ Mr. HAYDN JONES
asked the Minister of Pensions whether his attention has been called to the case of David James Evans, of Ilar House, Meyrick Street, Dolgelly, who, as the result of a medical board, was sent to the Chester Royal Infirmary as a case for urgent medical treatment whether he is aware that Evans remained at the infirmary from the 17th December till the 10th January last without being seen by any doctor; that he was there for a week without being supplied with a knife, fork, or spoon and had to eat with his fingers; and that he made several complaints without result; and will he inquire into the matter?537W
§ Major TRYON
The complaints referred to have been investigated and are found to be entirely without foundation. I am writing to the hon. Member in reply to a letter which he has sent me regarding the case.
