§ Mr. Gardner
asked the Minister of Health whether he is aware of the acute shortage of midwives in the Brentwood area; and if he will ensure that an adequate staff of midwives is made available.
§ Mr. Braine
My information is that the present numbers employed in the hospital and domiciliary services are adequate for the needs of the area, but I would be happy to consider any particular point which my hon. and learned Friend has in mind.
