Mr. David Adams
asked the Minister of Health what further steps he proposes to take with respect to the reports of the Royal Commission upon Tyneside local government?
§ Mr. Bernays
Following the conference held at Newcastle on 16th December last, letters were sent to the Northumberland County Council and the Newcastle City Council suggesting informal exploration by the two authorities of the possibility of co-ordinating public health medical services. The City Council have agreed to appoint a committee to consider the matter, and the County Council will have the subject before them this week.
