§ 36. Mr. BRIGGS
asked the Minister of Health what was the amount of the grants given last year for maternity and child welfare?
The amount of the grants for maternity and child welfare paid in the last financial year out of the Vote for the Ministry of Health was approximately £1,040,000 including about £16,000 in respect of the training of midwives and health visitors.
§ Mr. BRIGGS
Would my right hon. Friend welcome the receipt of further money from the Treasury for these purposes?
§ Mr. MARCH
Has the right hon. Gentleman given notice to any of these maternity and child welfare centres to reduce the amount they are now allowed for expectant mothers?
