HC Deb 10 February 1964 vol 689 cc2-3W
30. Mr. Denzil Freeth

asked the Minister of Health when his Department's inquiry into the needs of people who are both deaf and blind will be submitted to him; whether it will be published; and what action he is taking to provide better trained and more numerous visitors to such people.

Mr. Braine

The Ministry is studying the needs of the deaf blind, but no formal report will be made.

The Council for Training in Social Work is now considering what type of training is required by social workers to equip them to help the deaf and the blind. The Ministry is giving the Council all the help it can.
