HC Deb 06 July 1964 vol 698 c1W
5. Mr. Farey-Jones

asked the Minister of Health what steps he is taking to improve the arrangements for the visiting of sick children in hospital by their parents.

Mr. Barber

I am now advising hospital boards that wherever fixed visiting hours to children still exist they should be abandoned; the ward sister and consultant will retain discretion to decide when visiting would not be appropriate.
