HC Deb 21 March 1972 vol 833 c315W
Mr. Alexander Wilson

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland how many section V beds were available for patients in Lanarkshire hospitals at the nearest convenient date; and how this compares with the period 1965 to 1970.

Mr. Gordon Campbell

Since 1968, three private patients may be accommodated at any one time at the Victoria Auxiliary Infirmary, Philipshill. From 1965 to 1968, the number was four at Philipshill and four at Hairmyres Hospital.
