HC Deb 20 January 1949 vol 460 c40W
Mr. Royle

asked the Minister of Health if he will take the necessary steps to bring colonies for sane epileptics under the provisions of the National Health Act, 1946.

Mr. Bevan

No. The National Health Service provides treatment, but not residential care such as these colonies give. This is the responsibility of the local welfare authorities under the National Assistance Act.
