HC Deb 11 March 1957 vol 566 c130W
74. Mr. Mayhew

asked the Minister of Health whether he is satisfied with the standard of catering in mental hospitals; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Vosper

My predecessor made £500,000 available for improvements in catering at mental and mental deficiency hospitals in the current financial year. For next year, I have allocated sufficient money to meet the cost in a full year of these improvements and a further £400,000 for the same purpose.
