HC Deb 31 July 1925 vol 187 c845W
Colonel DAY

asked the Minister of Health if his attention has been drawn to the evidence given at a recent Hackney inquest upon Celia Makoff, for whom, before death, the doctor in attendance prescribed oxygen, which could not be obtained at the local infirmary or from chemists; and if he will consider the advisability of making an order requiring boards of guardians to have a supply of oxygen available for patients upon a doctor's prescription?


My attention has not previously been drawn to this case. On the information before me I am not satisfied that it is expedient to issue an order such as the hon. and gallant Member suggests.
