Alert me about debates like this

Mr. Denis Howell accordingly presented a Bill to provide that where two consultants employed within the National Health Service declare that a patient's life will be in grave danger or seriously impaired unless admitted and treated in hospital it shall be the duty of the appropriate Regional Health Authority to immediately provide for the admission to hospital and for the treatment of the said patient; and to make it an offence not to provide the necessary hospital admission and treatment: And the same was read the First time; and ordered to be read a Second time upon Friday 13 May and to be printed. [Bill 159.]
