HC Deb 31 January 1967 vol 740 c78W
Mr. Alan Lee Williams

asked the Minister of Health, whether he is satisfied that the present regulations governing children's nurseries are being observed; and what administrative machinery is being established between his Department and the Department of Education and Science regarding the implementation of the recommendations made in the Plowden Report.

Mr. K. Robinson

Local health authorities in England and Wales were recently asked to review the operation of the Nurseries and Child-Minders Regulation Act, 1948, in their areas, and I have no reason to suppose that they are not taking the steps open to them to enforce the Act in relation to private nurseries. The recommendations in the Plowden Report are being considered in accordance with the normal arrangements for interdepartmental consultation.
