HC Deb 08 December 1949 vol 470 cc173-4W
78. Brigadier Medlicott

asked the Minister of Health if he has considered the representations that have been made to him by the Norwich, Lowestoft and Great Yarmouth (Group 6) Hospital Management Committee concerning the use of the West Norwich Hospital as a reception centre for wayfarers, as such use is interfering with the normal use of this establishment as a hospital; and if he will take such action as will lead to the removal of the designation of this hospital as a reception centre for wayfarers.

Mr. Blenkinsop:

My right hon. Friend has had representations from the Regional Hospital Board, and is taking up the matter with the National Assistance Board to see whether other arrangements are possible.
