§ 52. Mr. GOULD
asked the Minister of Health whether the Somerset County Council has submitted any proposals under the Mental Treatment Act, 1930, to enable suitable cases to be treated without certification?
§ Mr. GREENWOOD
The local authority are not required to submit proposals for this purpose under the Mental Treatment Act; but admission documents received by the Board of Control indicate that some voluntary patients have already been received into the two mental hospitals belonging to the Somerset County and Bath County Borough Councils.
