HC Deb 14 December 1962 vol 669 c124W
Mr. Pavitt

asked the Minister of Health what is his policy with regard to the appointment of Regional Psychiatric Advisory Committees; how many regional hospital boards have such committees; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Powell

Boards have discretion in this matter: thirteen; one other proposes to have such a committee, and the remaining Board is advised by its mental health committee which includes two psychiatrists.
