HC Deb 31 March 1958 vol 585 cc92-3W
74. Mr. Hastings

asked the Minister of Health if he will make inquiries as to how it came about that Gordon John Burgess, age 17 years, recently placed on probation as a result of aiding, abetting, and assisting in manslaughter with a stolen car, was served with 10 or 12 whiskies at Banstead Hospital in the early hours of 8th February, 1958.

Mr. Walker-Smith

I am informed that Mr. Burgess obtained unauthorised admission to a staff dance at the hospital and presumably made use of the bar. I am assured that no drinks were served after midnight, the end of the period for which intoxicating liquor was allowed to be provided under the licence obtained for this function.
