§ Mr. Alfred Morris
asked the Minister of Health what further steps have been taken or are proposed to reduce the number of amenity and pay beds in the hospitals under his control.120W
§ Mr. K. Robinson
I do not contemplate any steps to reduce the number of amenity beds where there is a demand for them, as they are available on payment only when not required for other patients on medical grounds. On pay beds I would ask my hon. Friend to await the outcome of my review of policy which is nearly complete.
