  • Description

    KING BAUDOUIN OF BELGIUM CUT SHORT HIS VISIT TO DENMARK TODAY (FRIDAY) TO CONSULT WITH MINISTERS ABOUT THE LATEST GOVERNMENT CRISIS.

    NEWSMEN CROWDED AROUND THE GATES OF THE ROYAL PALACE AT LAEKEN AS KING BAUDOUIN AND QUEEN FABIOLA RETURNED BY CAR. THEY WERE TO HAVE SPENT THE LAST DAY OF THE VISIT TO DENMARK, PRIVATELY. THE FIRST VISITOR TO SEE THE KING, PRIME MINISTER PIERRE HARMEL HANDED IN HIS RESIGNATION.

    THE TROUBLE IS OVER DIFFERENCES IN THE OUTGOING COALITION GOVERNMENT ABOUT THE COUNTRY'S HEALTH SERVICES. THE GOVERNMENT'S RESIGNATION LEAVES UNSOLVED THE MAIN PROBLEM OF WHETHER THE PEOPLE SHOULD HAVE FREE HOSPITAL CARE OR HAVE TO PAY FOR IT.

    (THE COUNTRY'S 9,000 ARE OPPOSED TO FREE HOSPITAL TREATMENT. M. HARMEL'S SOCIAL CHRISTIAN PARTY WAS PREPARED TO SUPPORT THEM, PRINCIPALLY TO AVERT A CHAOTIC REPETITION OF THE DOCTORS' STRIKE TWO YEARS AGO. THE DOCTORS THREATEN TO STRIKE AGAIN IF THEIR CONDITIONS ARE NOT MET THIS TIME.)
