HC Deb 08 March 1977 vol 927 c481W
43. Mr. Neubert

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services how many hospitals he has visited in the last three months as a result of articles in the Press.

Mr. Moyle

I have in the last three months visited 19 hospitals. In the same period my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State has visited six hospitals, and my right hon. Friend the Minister for Social Security visited one.

As to the reasons for these visits I would refer the hon. Member to my reply to the hon. Member for Wells (Mr. Boscawen) on 8th February—[Vol. 925, c. 631.] If he wishes to know the reasons for any particular visit I will be glad to provide further information.
