§ 118. Mr. Gallacher
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if he is aware that the county fever hospital at Ovenstone, Pittenweem, Fifeshire, is lighted by paraffin lamps although there is an electric cable quite convenient to the hospital; and whether he will take action to remedy this.
§ Mr. Westwood
I understand that the Fife County Council have this matter in hand and are making every effort to secure the supply of electricity. The County Council do not, however, propose to send any more fever patients to this hospital after the six at present there have been discharged. If suitable proposals for the future use of the buildings are submitted to me by the Council Council, I shall do what I can to see that provision is made for electric lighting.
