§ Mr. Janner
asked the Minister of Education what steps he is taking to ensure that in medical inspections in schools sufficient attention is given to children's feet, in view of the importance of healthy feet in adult life.
§ Mr. Tomlinson
The importance of giving attention to the condition of children's feet is being increasingly recognised, and in recent years a number of local education authorities have established special chiropody clinics. My Chief Medical Officer has drawn attention to the importance of this service in both his post-war reports.
