§ 19. Mr. Edward Evans
asked the Minister of Health whether it is his intention to appoint an advisory committee in connection with the welfare services for physically handicapped persons provided for in the National Assistance Act, 1948; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Bevan
It would, of course, be my action to consult representative bodies. But these advisory committees are not representative committees; they are conferences; they are the appropriate advisory committees under the Act; but everybody concerned in the matter will be given an opportunity of putting forward names.
