HC Deb 28 July 1959 vol 610 c35W
Mrs. Mann

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if he has yet consulted the medical profession with regard to priority allocations for maternity beds in hospitals, as recommended by the Montgomery Report; and if he will now make a statement.

Mr. Maclay

I asked regional hospital boards in April to review their systems of admission to obstetric units in order to ensure that the best use is made of available accommodation and that bookings of beds are honoured and to let me have a report on the arrangements in their area by the end of October.
