§ 65. Mr. Cooper
asked the Minister of Health what representations he has received concerning hospital accommodation in the Ilford, Barking and Dagenham area; and what steps are being taken to meet the urgent requirements of this area.
§ Mr. Vaughan-Morgan
Representations have been received from a number of local authorities, local organisations and others about the need for additional hospital beds in this area. The North East Metropolitan Regional Hospital Board has just brought up to date its review of the hospital services in this area and is actively considering proposals aimed at a reorganisation and extension of the services both from the long and short term points of view, in order to meet the admitted deficiencies in the service.
