HC Deb 28 July 1960 vol 627 c201W
115. Mr. K. Robinson

asked the Minister of Health what steps he is taking to encourage health authorities, both local and hospital, to institute routine urine tests for phenylketonuria in newly-born babies.

Miss Pitt

With the Ministry's encouragement some local health authorities have already been able in cooperation with the hospital service to nstitute routine tests for phenylketonuria. In the light of the experience so gained, and the conclusions reached at a recent professional conference on this subject, consideration is now being given to what further steps may usefully be taken.
