asked the Minister of Health whether he is aware of the shortage of nurses at the Norfolk County Isolation Hospital; and what steps he is taking to help the county council to meet the present difficult situation.

:Yes, Sir. My officers and those of the Ministry of Labour and National Service are doing their utmost to fill the vacancies at this hospital. In addition, permission is being given to the hospital authority to advertise, and the use, if necessary, of alternative accommodation is being considered. As the hon. and gallant Member knows, there is a general shortage of staff and measures designed to deal with it will be announced shortly.
