HC Deb 08 July 1957 vol 573 c7W
59. Mr. Slater

asked the Minister of Health to what extent the intake of mental illness patients in the Durham County area has gone up within the last two years; and how such figures compare with the rest of the country for the same period.

Mr. Vaughan-Morgan

Admissions to Cherry Knowle and Winterton Hospitals in 1956 exceeded those in 1954 by 15 per cent. and 58 per cent. respectively. For the whole of England and Wales the increase was 17 per cent.
