§ 22. Mr. Iremonger
asked the Minister of Health if he will recommend to regional hospital boards that visiting arrangements should always be such as to allow other relatives as well as husbands to visit patients in maternity wards on weekday evenings.
§ Mr. K. Robinson
All hospital authorities with maternity beds have been advised to allow, on each day of the week, visitors in addition, or as an alternative, to the husband, if the mother wants this. Many hospitals do in fact allow both relatives and husbands to visit together.
