HC Deb 06 February 1941 vol 368 c1103W
Sir W. Jenkins

asked the Minister of Health whether he is aware that there are thousands of pounds of material lying waste at the Church Village Hospital, Glamorgan; that the essential timber for roofing is not supplied; that priority claim promises, which have been made at intervals since January, 1940, are not fulfilled; will he take immediate steps to remove the obstacles so that the materials on the site may be used, as skilled workers are leaving regularly and the hospital is urgently needed for military and local purposes; and will he arrange for a special visit of inspection to be made to Glamorgan to see this and other hospitals' needs?

Mr. M. MacDonald

One of my senior technical officers visited the site at the end of November and has recently conferred with the architect responsible for the work. A high priority has been given to the scheme and arrangements made which should result in rapid progress. As regards the last part of the Question perhaps the hon. Member would be good enough to let me know what he has in mind.
