asked the Minister of Health how many fully staffed beds were available for the treatment of tuberculosis in England and Wales in 1945, 1946 and 1947; how many patients were discharged from these sanatoria during 1945, 1946 and 1947 and in how many of these was a report of disease arrested made, and in how many was it definitely cured; and what the total cost of treatment was.

The numbers of beds at the end of 1945, 1946 and 1947 respectively were approximately 27,340, 27,150 and 28,830. I regret that the other information requested by my hon. Friend is not available.
