HC Deb 11 March 1929 vol 226 cc810-1W

asked the Minister of Health whether he has yet considered the resolution passed and forwarded to him by the grand council of the National Citizens' Union that he should cause an inquiry to be held into the possibility of legalising the sterilisation of mentally deficient persons under certain conditions and subject to proper safeguards; and whether he has any statement to make upon the matter?


I would refer the hon. Member to the reply given to a similar question put to me by the hon. and gallant Member for Newcastle-under-Lyme (Colonel Wedgwood) on 27th February.
