HC Deb 10 February 1958 vol 582 c9W
63. Mr. Gower

asked the Minister of Health how many people were waiting to enter hospitals in Wales at the latest convenient date; what is the average waiting period; and how these figures compare with the figures for six years ago.

Mr. Walker-Smith

30,547 at the end of September as compared with 40,003 at the end of 1951. I regret that information as to the average waiting time is not available.
