§ 30. Mr. Kenneth Lindsay
asked the Minister of Health whether he will make a statement about the first assembly of the World Health Organisation.
§ Mr. Bevan
This most important assembly opened on 24th June. More than 50 countries are represented. The United Kingdom Delegation is headed by the Chief Medical Officer of my Department. The main subjects for consideration will, I understand, be malaria, maternal and child health, tuberculosis, and venereal disease.
§ Mr. Lindsay
I am obliged to the right hon. Gentleman. In view of the excellent work which this organisation is doing, and the firm technical ground now being established, will the right hon. Gentleman consider next year himself going to this Conference and representing the Government there?
Mr. Wilson Harris
Could the right hon. Gentleman say whether the Soviet Union is taking part in the work of this Conference?
