HC Deb 29 October 1985 vol 84 cc449-50W
Mr. Willie W. Hamilton

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services if he will make a statement on the future of Crown immunity, especially in relation to National Health Service hospitals and other National Health Service properties.

Mr. Hayhoe

I am most concerned at recent reports of poor hygiene standards in National Health Service hospitals and urgent management action to secure any necessary improvements is being taken. Representations calling for the lifting of Crown immunity from the National Health Service are also being carefully considered.
