HC Deb 21 November 1950 vol 481 c40W
Mr. J. Morrison

asked the Minister of Health what precautions are taken to segregate the laundry from hospitals treating polio and other infectious diseases in order to avoid the spread of infection; and if he is satisfied that these precautions are adequate.

Mr. Bevan

Infectious disease hospitals normally have their own laundries; failing this soiled linen is disinfected before being sent out. I have no evidence that these arrangements have proved inadequate.
