HC Deb 17 February 1949 vol 461 c188W
76. Mr. Sorensen

asked the Minister of Health what progress has been made respecting the supply of analgesia apparatus both to hospitals and to midwives; and what other methods of relieving pain in child-birth are now being investigated with the possibility of their adoption or alternatives to existing methods.

Mr. Bevan

Later figures than those given in reply to my hon. Friend's Question of 10th June last are not yet available. Investigation is proceeding into the possibility of devising a safe apparatus for the administration of trilene by midwives.
