HC Deb 03 December 1958 vol 596 cc140-1W
89. Miss Bacon

asked the Secretary of State for War if he will reconsider his decision to charge fees to Mrs. Peel, Oastler House, Quarry Hill Flats, Leeds, for treatment she received in a British military hospital in Berlin while visiting her daughter and son-in-law, the latter being a member of Her Majesty's forces.

Mr. Soames

No. The Army cannot provide free hospital treatment for British subjects travelling abroad. In cases of emergency we are glad to help by accepting patients in military hospitals, but we have to make a charge.
