HC Deb 23 February 1939 vol 344 cc565-6
75. Mr. G. Griffiths

asked the Minister of Health whether he will state for England and Wales in 1937 the number of infants and children up to five years of age who attended infant welfare centres; how many of these went to toddlers' clinics; the number of toddlers' clinics; and the number of children visited by health visitors?

Mr. Elliot

The number of infants and children who attended infant welfare centres and the number of infants under one year who were visited by health visitors in 1937 were 987,843 and 594,886 respectively. It is not possible to give the separate figures asked for in the second and third parts of the question, but at the majority of centres children of any age up to five may attend.
