HC Deb 15 December 1949 vol 470 c302W
100. General Sir G. Jeffreys

asked the Minister of Health whether he is aware that the arrangements outlined in his circular H.M.C. (49) 22 of 16th February, 1949, whereby facilities were to be granted for reduced fares for visitors to patients at hospitals dealing with long stay cases have not yet been put into effect owing to the failure of the railway executive to take any action in the matter; whether he is aware of the inconvenience and heavy correspondence caused in consequence to Treloars and other hospitals; and whether he will press the railway executive to give effect to this concession at the earliest possible moment.

Mr. Bevan

Yes. 1 hope that the railway executive will be able soon to announce the list of hospitals to which these arrangements will apply.
