HC Deb 25 October 1962 vol 664 c187W
Mr. Mason

asked the Minister of Health if he is aware that his directive designed to limit expenditure on the running and maintenance of hospitals is having adverse effects on hospital management in Barnsley, especially by making it difficult to recruit nurses and other staff and to reduce waiting lists; and what steps he intends to take to alleviate this situation.

Mr. Braine

No: expansion of the hospital service is continuing in conformity with the Estimates.
