HC Deb 22 June 1950 vol 476 cc145-6W
Dr. Stross

asked the Minister of Health how many cases of pneumoconiosis are having treatment at the Royal Infirmary, Stoke-on-Trent; what is the average cost of treatment of each case per year; and whether any evidence of clinical or radiological improvement has been noted in any of the cases treated.

Mr. Bevan

About 120 are being treated as out-patients; it is not possible to state the average cost, and it is too early to assess the value of the treatment.
