§ Mr. Ron Lewis
asked the Minister of Health if he will seek to make available special grants to voluntary organisations that cater for mentally handicapped children.
§ Mr. K. Robinson
The present Clause 63 of the Health Services and Public Health Bill will enable me to help voluntary bodies active in relation to the health and welfare services: the extent to which this power can be used will depend, among other things, on the availability of resources. Local health authorities already have a power to assist these and other voluntary bodies.
