HC Deb 20 December 1954 vol 535 c229W
107. Mr. G. Thomas

asked the Minister of Health what is the number of vacant beds in each of the Welsh sanatoria; and whether he will make a statement.

Miss Hornsby-Smith

There are altogether 268 vacant beds in six tuberculosis hospitals, due either to renovations or to shortage of staff. Every effort is being made to obtain the necessary additional nurses.
