HC Deb 06 February 1968 vol 758 c61W
50. Mr. Rhodes

asked the Minister of Health what instructions and/or advice he has given regional hospital boards in respect of the dumping of disused medical instruments, medical records, and human remains.

Mr. Snow

Advice has been given on the prevention of the spread of infection and on the confidentiality of hospital medical records. Hospital authorities are well aware of the requirements in disposing of such items and it is for them to make appropriate arrangements.
