HC Deb 15 July 1957 vol 573 cc87-8W
75. Mrs. Slater

asked the Minister of Health what provisions are made, or should be made, by hospital management committees to ensure that X-ray machines and other electrical equipment are adequately serviced.

Mr. Vaughan-Morgan

X-ray sets are normally serviced by the manufacturers, and other electrical equipment by the technical staff of the management committee or by outside experts brought in by the committee. Guidance on the maintenance of certain electrical apparatus was given in the report of a working party on anaesthetic explosions which was brought to the notice of hospital authorities last August.
