HC Deb 21 December 1971 vol 828 c287W
Mr. Geoffrey Lloyd

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services what additional hospital accommodation he has arranged for those areas where there has been an increased incidence of tuberculosis, particularly among those born outside the United Kingdom.

Sir K. Joseph

Most patients with tuberculosis now no longer require hospital in-patient treatment. For those that do, I am not aware that the existing provision has proved inadequate, even in those areas where above average rates of tuberculosis have been experienced.
