HC Deb 11 June 1968 vol 766 c4W
37. Mr. Ryan

asked the Minister of Health what progress has been made in the recruitment of volunteers in the local authority and hospital services as recommended in his Circular 7/62.

Mr. Snow

Voluntary work is normally arranged locally and full information about it is not available centrally. A great variety of voluntary service is given by many agencies and individuals to hospitals of all types and to the local authority health and welfare services, and all authorities are well aware of my strong desire for its continued expansion.
