§ 52. Mr. Manuel
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if he is aware that in connection with the detection of tuberculosis no routine X-ray examinations take place in the three main hospitals in Ayrshire; and when such examinations will take place.
§ Mr. Ross
Chest X-ray examinations for the detection of tuberculosis among patients attending these hospitals are made when the physician has any reason at all to suspect that the disease may be present. Whether there should be a routine examination for all patients is a matter for the hospital authorities to decide.
