HC Deb 30 July 1957 vol 574 c176W
Mr. Ellis Smith

asked the Minister of Health how far alternative sources of electric power are available in the hospitals within the City of Stoke-on-Trent; what action is to be taken to make alternative sources available at once when necessary in operating theatres; and whether he is satisfied that there are sufficient skilled staff for the electrical service.

Mr. Vaughan-Morgan

All hospitals with operating theatres have arrangements for emergency electricity supply to the theatres. I am satisfied that there is adequate skilled staff for the routine maintenance and inspection of hospital electrical services.
