From the archive: Edinburgh municipal general hospitals 2 July, 1937

EDINBURGH Town Council yesterday decided that fee paying should be continued in municipal general hospitals, and a remit was made to the Town Clerk and the City Chamberlain to report as to whether any alteration should be made in the method of admission to hospitals.

A Socialist motion to abolish fee paying was defeated by 32 votes to 13. A proposal to set up a Corporation Works Department for housing led to considerable discussion, and was rejected by a large majority. Lord Provost Gumley presided. By 39 votes to 16 the minute of the last meeting of the Council relating to the reconstruction of the Waverley Market was approved. The proposal is to extend the market over the Waverley Station for about 30 square yards. This will involve the raising of the roof of the market by four feet, and the erection of a cupola on a line not less than 160 feet.
