HC Deb 31 July 1934 vol 292 cc2459-60
30. Mr. T. SMITH

asked the Minister of Health whether he will have a full report made to him by local authorities for the information of Members as to the extension of their services during the first triennial period which terminated on 31st March of last year?

The MINISTER of HEALTH (Sir Hilton Young)

A system of surveys by medical officers of my Department of the public health services of local authorities was started in 1930, and the surveys of the services of the larger authorities are now practically complete. A summary of the information thus obtained, showing the developments of these services in recent years, will appear in the annual report of my Department which is about to be published, and it is pro- posed shortly to commence the surveys of the public health services of other authorities.
