asked the Minister of Health whether he is aware that the Coventry Corporation has had to close down temporarily the physio-therapy section at the municipal hospitals as the last remaining physio-therapist is about to retire on the ground of age; and whether he will consult with the Minister of Labour in order to obtain the immediate release from the Forces of two physio-therapists under Class B in order to carry on this work.

I have undertaken to assist the Corporation to secure the services of another physio-therapist as soon as the need arises.
