§ 19. Mr. Medland
asked the Minister of Health the amount of money paid to voluntary hospitals in the county of Devon for Emergency Medical Services since 1939, to date; and the amount paid to the voluntary hospitals of Plymouth for those services for the same period.
§ Mr. Bevan:
The total amount of money paid since the 2nd September, 1939, to voluntary hospitals in the County of Devon, including the county boroughs of Exeter and Plymouth, for the reservation of beds and the maintenance and treatment of patients under the Emergency Hospital Scheme, which is part of the Emergency Medical Service, is about £550,000. Of this sum, about £160,000 has gone to voluntary hospitals in the county borough of Plymouth.
