HC Deb 19 July 1926 vol 198 cc903-4W

asked the Minister of Health if his Department has any record of the extension of nursing homes or institutions for the poorer middle class for the use of which payment is made on a modest scale; and whether he can take any action to stimulate such provision?


The answer to the first part of the question is in the negative. As regards the second part, while I appreciate the need for accommodation of this kind, its provision is a matter for local initiative, and there are no funds at my disposal from which assistance can be given.
