§ 40. Mr. Burden
asked the Minister of Health if he is aware that, of the present total of 74 maternity beds in the Gillingham area, family doctors have a basic allocation of 10 only; and to what extent this basic allocation will be increased when the total number of beds is increased to the 103 promised by the end of April.
§ Mr. Loughlin
Yes. I understand that no request has been made to the South East Metropolitan Regional Hospital Board to increase the allocation.
