HC Deb 21 July 1924 vol 176 cc902-3W

asked the Minister of Health how many institutions under his control have been equipped with wireless receiving sets; and whether, having regard to the success of the installation at St. Bartholomew's Hospital, he will look favourably on any proposal to instal such apparatus?


I have no information as to the number of institutions in which wireless sets have been installed. I am advised that if such an installation is desirable for the well-being of the inmates of the institution it would be competent to the authority to incur reason able expenditure for the purpose.
