HC Deb 20 January 1953 vol 510 cc21-2W
101. Mr. P. Roberts

asked the Minister of Health whether he will now consider giving greater latitude to hospitals under the heading of "Maintenance of Buildings," in view of the fact that some buildings today are quite unfitted to deal with the increase in the number of outpatients which has been experienced.

Mr. Iain Macleod

The amount of money that hospital authorities may spend on building maintenance must continue for the present to be governed by overall financial limitations.
