HC Deb 19 March 1968 vol 761 cc57-8W
48. Mr. Fisher

asked the Minister of Health whether he will consider providing family units in future hospital building so that mothers can remain with their children and help to look after them when the children are admitted to hospital.

Mr. K. Robinson

My department's Building Note No. 23 of 1964 recommends that children's wards should include accommodation for mothers. As far as I am aware this advice has been followed in planning new buildings.
