HC Deb 15 July 1963 vol 681 c11W
Lord Balniel

asked the Minister of Health whether he is satisfied with the response of hospital authorities and local authorities to his circular on the admission of patients to hospital and on compiling hospital waiting lists; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Powell

The response has been good; the review for which I asked has reduced geriatric and similar lists by 25 per cent.
