§ 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.
