HC Deb 16 June 1938 vol 337 cc411-2W
Mr. Sorensen

asked the Minister of Health whether he will state the total amount of Government grant to county and borough councils during the past seven years for the purpose of research into the cause and treatment of mental disorder?

Mr. Elliot

No such grants have been made to local authorities for the purpose mentioned in the hon. Member's question. An Advisory Committee has been set up with my approval by the Board of Control to consider the general question of research into mental disorders.
