§ 87. Mr. Dodds
asked the Minister of Health how many doctors were concerned in the certification of Mrs. Harriett Thornton which resulted in her detention in a mental home for 3½ years; and on how many occasions, and for how long, did each doctor see her before a decision was taken to send Mrs. Thornton to a mental home.
§ Mr. Turton
One, for the summary reception order by a justice of the peace made on the 30th March, 1953, which continued for a year, and one for each of the two statutory reports and certificates as a result of which the order continued until 25th October, 1956. With regard to the second part of the Question this is a matter of which I have neither knowledge nor jurisdiction.
