EDM number 1310 in 1992-93, proposed by Paul Flynn on 03/02/1993.

That this House condemns the mean, contemptible, money grubbing action by managers of the Royal Gwent Hospital, Newport who ordered nurses to remove television sets that were freely available for patients in order to give non-ambulant patients no choice other than to use hire televisions at a cost of up to three pounds a day; recalls that most of the free televisions had been donated by local charities and notes that the excuse that this action was necessary for safety reasons has been denied by the Health and Safety Commission; and insists that the companionship provided by television is restored to patients who should no longer be exploited as a captive market for greedy businesses and managers hell-bent on Americanising the NHS.

This motion has been signed by a total of 63 MPs.
