asked the Minister of Health if his attention has been directed to the circumstances surrounding the recent death of a patient in the Harton Hospital of the South Shields Board of Guardians, into which a committee of inquiry appointed by the board has investigated; if he has caused further investigation to be made; if the officer investigating it on his behalf has had at his disposal a full transcript of the shorthand note made at the guardians' inquiry; and what action he proposes to take thereon?

My attention has been drawn to this case. I am awaiting the result of the guardians' investigation which, I understand, is still proceeding.
