HC Deb 17 December 1963 vol 686 cc196-7W
Mr. Skeet

asked the Minister of Health what inquiry he has made into the circumstances under which Miss Elsie Waring, aged 35 years, a patient in the Willesden General Hospital after having been certified dead was discovered alive in the hospital mortuary; and whether he will hold an inquiry into the system of certification of deaths that makes such accidents possible.

Mr. Braine
