HC Deb 07 March 1955 vol 538 c20
11. Mr. Marquand

asked the Minister of Health whether he will make a statement concerning the distribution of welfare foods by local authorities for the first six months following the transfer to them of responsibility for this service.

Mr. Iain Macleod

I would refer the right hon. Member to the returns which I have called for from local health authorities and to which I made reference in my answer to him of the 4th March.

Mr. Marquand

Would the right hon. Gentleman be willing to collaborate with me in arranging in some way for an oral answer to this Question at a later date when he has the information?

Mr. Macleod

Yes, certainly.
