asked the Minister of Health what progress has been made with the scheme for the organisation of relief units for the institutional treatment of tuberculosis as outlined to the representatives of the Canterbury city council, at an interview at the Ministry of Health on 24th March last; and whether he can now give any date when the present serious position in Canterbury will receive attention?

The interview to which my hon. Friend refers appears to have been a discussion between the medical officer of health of Canterbury and officers of my Department, at which it was suggested that certain beds at the municipal isolation hospital might be used to relieve the waiting list of tuberculosis cases. I am informed that this has now been done.
