HC Deb 16 July 1931 vol 255 cc785-6W

asked the Minister of Health the number of reception hospitals that now exist and that have been opened during the last 12 months in connection with public mental hospitals, and the total number of beds available in both cases?


Admission hospitals have been provided or are under construction at about a quarter of the public mental hospitals. Complete statistics on the other points raised in the question are not at present available, but I will make inquiry and communicate further with my hon. Friend.
