HC Deb 20 April 1959 vol 604 cc3-4W
62. Dr. Stross

asked the Minister of Health what response he has had from local health authorities since he asked them to consider whether any further improvements could be made in the distribution arrangements of welfare foods; and what steps he will now take to ensure that there are a sufficient number of centres available, open at suitable hours.

Mr. R. Thompson

I am satisfied that local health authorities are fully aware of the importance of adequate distribution facilities for Welfare Foods, and that they make sufficient arrangements to meet the needs of mothers in their areas.
