102. Mr. George Thomas

asked the Secretary of State for Wales what is the number of geriatric cases in Cardiff and district who are awaiting admission to hospital; and whether he will make a statement.

Mr. Peter Thomas

At 24th June, 1971, there were 20. The Welsh Hospital Board's proposals for the reorganisation of hospital services in the Cardiff area make provision for 738 beds for geriatric and psycho-geriatric patients by 1st April, 1973, compared with 592 at present.
