HC Deb 01 February 1949 vol 460 c224W
Sir E. Graham-Little

asked the Minister of Health if he has inquired into the case, details of which have been submitted to him, in which a boy certified by his family doctor and a consultant psychiatrist to be in urgent need of medical observation, has been refused treatment by various municipal bodies, and threatens to become a case of juvenile delinquency; and what steps he is taking to remedy this position.

Mr. Tomlinson

I have been asked to reply. I understand that, in view of the urgency, arrangements have now been made for this boy to go at once to the Child Guidance Centre provided by the local education authority at Canterbury, although the centre has a long waiting list.
