§ Mr. Raphael Tuck
asked the Secretary of State for Social Services whether, in view of the fact that four nurses have been suspended from Napsbury Mental Hospital following a police inquiry into the death there of a woman patient from severe internal injuries, he will immediately institute a full-scale inquiry into conditions in that hospital.
§ Sir K. Joseph
Until the outcome of the police inquiries is known, I cannot decide whether any further inquiry is needed. I understand that the police have recently submitted a report to the Director of Public Prosecutions.
