HC Deb 06 December 1962 vol 668 c225W
Miss Herbison

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what was the percentage of births in hospitals and nursing homes during 1961, giving figures separately for both for each regional hospital board area.

Mr. Noble

These figures are not available as the returns made by the local authorities do not always distinguish birth in nursing homes from those in hospital; but generally the proportion in nursing homes is small.
