HC Deb 30 November 1964 vol 703 c21W
Mr. Ian Lloyd

asked the Minister of Health what steps he proposes to take to improve the maternity services in the Portsmouth, Langstone, area.

Sir B. Stross

I am informed that the domiciliary service is adequate for present needs. A new maternity unit, now well advanced in planning, is to be provided at St. Mary's Hospital, Portsmouth, which serves this area. It will replace the present unit and provide 63 extra beds.
