Mr. Hardy

asked the Minister of Health whether he is aware that many hospitals and wards are closing down due to shortage of domestic staffs; and what steps he is taking in conjunction with local authorities, joint industrial and Whitley Councils to improve the conditions applicable to domestic staffs employed in hospitals.

Mr. Messer

asked the Minister of Health how he proposes to provide sufficient nursing staff for the successful working of a comprehensive national health service.

Mr. Bevan

I have the whole hospital domestic staff situation, with the nursing situation, under urgent review and hope to make a statement on both very soon.
