HC Deb 18 June 1925 vol 185 c815W

asked the Minister of Health whether he can see his way to take any steps to promote the medical education of the people?


If, as I assume, the hon. Member's question refers to the provision of simple information on health questions, I may say that many local authorities already provide such information, and that my Department have recently published a memorandum on public education in health by the chief medical officer, which deals generally with such provision. A proposal to extend the powers of local authorities in this matter is now before Parliament.
