HC Deb 15 July 1964 vol 698 c244W
Mr. Wolrige-Gordon

asked the Secretary of Stale for Scotland what was the housing position in East Aberdeenshire in 1959; and what is the position today.

Mr. Noble

I have no separate figures for different parts of the landward area of Aberdeen County. For the landward area as a whole, and for the five burghs in East Aberdeenshire, housing progress between 1st January, 1959, and 31st March, 1964, is shown by the following figures:

what bed requirement this figure would represent, based on the average stay in hospital.

Mr. Noble

Five hundred and ninety-nine patients were admitted representing a requirement of 51 beds.
