HC Deb 25 November 1957 vol 578 cc82-3W
63 and 64. Mr. George Craddock

asked the Minister of Health (1) if his attention has been drawn to the conditions existing at St. Luke's Hospital, Bradford; and if he will state what provision is being made to improve facilities urgently required;

(2) if future building policy now covers the removal of undesirable hutments in the grounds of St. Luke's Hospital, Bradford.

Mr. Walker-Smith

I am aware of the unsatisfactory condition of the hutted wards known as block H, as are the Regional Hospital Board. Work has been in hand for some time to enable the block to be closed, and I am informed that it is hoped to do this by 1st December. Long-term hospital building policy in Bradford is still under consideration by the Board.
