§ 116. Mr. J. Morrison
asked the Minister of Health the total number of cases suffering from pulmonary tuberculosis who have applied, or been recommended for admission to a sanatorium, and who have not yet been found accommodation; and what steps he proposes taking to expedite this matter.
§ Mr. J. Edwards
In England and Wales, at 31st December, 1946, the number who had been on waiting lists for institutional treatment for longer than ten days was about 7,000. The chief difficulty is shortage of staff and the utmost efforts are being made to remedy this.
