HC Deb 18 July 1969 vol 787 c223W
Mr. Rose

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services whether he will take action to ensure that regional hospital boards increase staff in emergency outpatient casulty wards in order to expedite the treatment of these cases.

Mr. Crossman

My predecessor advised hospital authorities last November on the general level of staffing of accident and emergency departments. I am not aware of delay at these departments in the treatment of injuries.
