HC Deb 19 June 1973 vol 858 c72W
41. Mr. Hornby

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services whether he is satisfied that the procedures laid down in hospitals for informing next of kin when serious cases are admitted to hospital are adequate and properly observed.

Sir K. Joseph

In general, yes. If my hon. Friend would let me know of any instances where these procedures or their observance seem to have been inadequate I shall be happy to have them investigated.
