HC Deb 20 May 1957 vol 570 c856
36. Mr. Blenkinsop

asked the Minister of Health when the Report of the Royal Commission on Mental Illness and Mental Deficiency will become available.

Mr. Vaughan-Morgan

I am informed that it is likely to be presented towards the end of this month.

Mr. Blenkinsop

Does the hon. Gentleman realise that the House will be grateful for anything he can do to speed up publication, in view of the fact that we desire to press forward with legislation based upon a real assessment of the facts rather than upon emotional feelings?

Mr. Vaughan-Morgan

I sympathise with the hon. Gentleman's point of view, but I would point out that the end of this month is not very far away.
