HC Deb 18 December 1952 vol 509 cc234-5W
59. Miss Ward

asked the Minister of Health whether he has now received a deputation from the Northern Regional Hospital Board; and what response he was able to make to their representations.

Mr. Iain Macleod

I regret that I was not able personally to receive the deputation, but they have been seen by officers on my behalf. I am glad to have been able to agree to the Board's proceeding this year with a limited number of specially urgent small schemes which it was feared might have to be postponed until next year or later.
