HC Deb 12 December 1929 vol 233 c687W

asked the Minister of Health whether an inquiry is taking place into the general conditions of the deaf and dumb and deafened and the difficulties they have in securing and retaining employment?


As I have already informed my hon. Friend, I am of the opinion that, before the case for considering the appointment of a special committee of inquiry can be regarded as being established, it is necessary to obtain fuller information than is at present available, and steps are being taken to obtain that information.
