§ Mr. J. Bennett
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland how many Glasgow children of school age are awaiting admittance to hospital for the removal of tonsils and adenoids; and how long is the average waiting period.
§ Mr. Maclay
Where an early operation is medically necessary, there is no delay. In non-urgent cases, of which 1,675 are at present known to be waiting, admission has been taking from a few weeks to over a year.
