HC Deb 05 November 1940 vol 365 cc1221-2W
Mr. Daggar

asked the Home Secretary whether he has any statement to make regarding the publication of the Horder Committee Report?

Miss Wilkinson

Yes, Sir. Lord Horder's Committee was appointed by the then Minister of Home Security and the Minister of Health, on the 14th September, 1940, and presented an interim report within a few days. Since then the committee has continued to sit and my right hon. Friends have now received a further report bringing the account of their investigations and findings up to date. The recommendations of their interim report were accepted, and action is being taken upon them. This also applies to some of the recommendations in the further report; the others are now under consideration. Now that both reports are completed, my right hon. Friend proposes, with the agreement of the Minister of Health, to publish the recommendations of the committee.

Forward to
