HC Deb 03 May 1938 vol 335 c699W
Colonel Nathan

asked the Home Secretary what arrangements are in contemplation in regard to medical and nursing services and orderlies or wardens in such London voluntary hospitals as shall be equipped and prepared for the reception of gas and other civilian casualties in the event of war; and what contribution it is proposed to make out of public funds towards the expenses of such services?

Sir S. Hoare:

The preliminary examination of the problem of accommodation for casualties in the London hospitals, both those belonging to the local authorities and the voluntary hospitals which has been made by my right hon. Friend the Minister of Health, is nearly completed, and I hope shortly to be able to make a statement on the whole matter.
