HC Deb 10 May 1965 vol 712 c6W
45. Sir C. Osborne

asked the Minister of Health if he is aware that 70 per cent. of the maternity beds in Willesden were recently occupied by immigrant mothers; if he will give an assurance that adequate facilities were available for indigenous mothers; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Loughlin

No, figures are not kept of the numbers of beds occupied by immigrant mothers. The admission arrangements seek to ensure that every mother who requires a maternity bed on medical or social grounds obtains one.
