asked the Minister of Health if he will make a statement on the result of his investigations into the case of Mrs. Henrietta Burns.

Mr. K. Robinson

Mrs. Burns is claiming compensation for alleged negligence in treatment given to her at Hope Hospital, Salford. The allegation of negligence has been investigated and is denied. Mrs. Burns has been advised repeatedly by the Regional Hospital Board and my Department that if she wishes to pursue her allegation and claim she should do so through the Courts.
