HC Deb 29 January 1962 vol 652 c67W
Mr. Abse

asked the Minister of Health whether he is aware that there are no senior medical laboratory technicians at the Pontypool Hospital and the County Hospital, Griffithstown; that there are hazards to health in the employment without adequate supervision of junior technicians in the laboratories; and whether he will implement immediately the award made to medical laboratory technicians in order to attract suitable personnel into the Newport and East Monmouthshire area.

Miss Pitt

There is a senior technician at Pontypool Hospital, and it is intended to appoint one at the County Hospital, Griffithstown, where the junior technicians work under the supervision of a pathologist.

As regards the last part of the Question, I would refer the hon. Member to my reply on 27th November last to the hon. Member for Wolverhampton, North-East (Mr. Baird).
