HC Deb 04 May 1964 vol 694 c113W
40. Dame Irene Ward

asked the Minister of Health whether, in view of the mortality rates of mothers and babies in the Newcastle-on-Tyne Regional Hospital Board area, and the shortages of maternity beds there, he will arrange for more adequate provision by providing the essential finance.

Mr. Barber

The recently published review of the Hospital Plan includes a number of additional maternity schemes in the Newcastle Region.
