HC Deb 18 July 1957 vol 573 c147W
Dr. D. Johnson

asked the Minister of Health whether he will extend his instructions for the pre-legislative review of certified mental patients to patients detained in private mental hospitals; and what agency will be responsible for the carrying out of such a review.

Mr. Vaughan-Morgan

The Royal Commission did not recommend any review of patients in mental hospitals (as distinct from mental deficiency hospitals) before new legislation.
