HC Deb 20 January 1949 vol 460 cc39-40W
10. Mr. Blackburn

asked the Minister of Health what steps he will take to encourage appeals for subscriptions by the public towards funds for special amenities for the patients and staff of specific hospitals.

Mr. Bevan

I welcome voluntary financial help for amenities for patients and staff, but I do not wish to encourage hospital bodies or their members to take part in appeals.
