66. Flight-Lieutenant Haire

asked the Minister of Health how long persons diagnosed as suffering from tuberculosis have to wait before admission to a sanatorium.

Mr. Bevan:

The waiting period for admission of patients requiring sanatorium treatment varies from a few days to several months in exceptional cases, according to the urgency of the individual case, home circumstances, war service, accommodation available to the tuberculosis authority concerned, and other factors.
