An Onehunga resident last month complained to the Auckland Hospital Board about an ambulance which was sent to take his wife to the hospital. He stated that the ambulance was wet inside, and there was nothing to" lay his wife on. The rubber on the wheels was broken, he continued, making travelling rough, and the person in charge was not fit to be in charge. Therefore, he did not allow his wife to be taken in it.

Dr. Purdy was asked to report, and at this afternoon's meeting a communication was received from him in which he stated, after supplying a detailed report, that although generally the ambulance needed overhauling and repairing, and the tyres replaced at once, he did not thinfe there was any reason to infer that the present arrangement was not acting satisfactorily.
