HC Deb 06 February 1956 vol 548 c152W
69. Dame Irene Ward

asked the Minister of Health why hospitals in London have curtains to separate beds when desired in the wards for the purpose of privacy when provincial hospitals are denied this amenity; and if he will take steps towards establishing uniformity.

Mr. Turton

The cost and not geography is the factor limiting the division of wards into cubicles by curtaining.
