§ Sir A. WILSON
asked the Minister of Health whether and, if so, when he proposes to introduce legislation to give effect to the recommendations of the Report of the departmental committee on sterilisation (Cmd. 4485, 1933); and what have been the results of his consultation through the Board of Control with the Medical Research Council and the Registrar-General?
§ Sir K. WOOD
The Government do not propose to introduce legislation for this purpose at present. The consultation referred to in the latter part of the question is not complete, and inquiries on certain matters on which research was recommended by the Departmental Committee are still in progress.
