HC Deb 21 March 1972 vol 833 c298W
Mr. Arthur Lewis

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services whether he will cause an investigation to be made to ascertain to what extent the National Health Service is understaffed and under financed, thereby causing delays in patients having to wait for beds for in-patient treatment and operations; and what action he proposes to take to change this situation.

Sir K. Joseph

The requirements of the National Health Service for staff and finance are kept continually under review and there have under the present Administration been substantial injections of additional resources.
