HC Deb 02 July 1962 vol 662 c8W
68. Mr. Costain

asked the Minister of Health if he is aware that there is inadequate accommodation for immigrants to be medically examined at Folkestone Harbour and that, with the coming into operation on 1st July of the Commonwealth Immigrants Act, 1962, the situation will become critical in view of the greater number of persons it will be necessary to examine; and what disdiscussions he has bad with those responsible for providing the accommodation with a view to remedying this matter.

Mr. Powell

Yes, as a result of discussions I understand further accommodation will be provided shortly.
