HC Deb 21 July 1969 vol 787 c252W
Mr. Ron Lewis

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services what facilities exist for the early recognition of alcoholics in industry; if he is satisfied that these facilities are adequate; if he will take further steps to improve them; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Crossman

In 1968 advice from the Standing Mental Health Advisory Committee on the general problems of the prevention, assessment and treatment of alcoholism was issued to hospital authorities, local health authorities and Executive Councils, and I am sending my hon. Friend a copy of the relevant circulars.
