HC Deb 19 June 1969 vol 785 c143W
64. Mr. Ronald Bell

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services if he will publish in the OFFICIAL REPORT the statistics he has received from the 58 authorities which he asked to collect statistics of the use by people, according to their place of origin, of various social services.

Mr. Snow

As the hon. Member will have gathered from my right hon. Friend's reply to Questions on 24th March from my hon. Friends the Members for Poplar (Mr. Mikardo) and Willesden, West (Mr. Pavitt), this is an exploratory statistical inquiry into the use being made of certain health services, undertaken at his request by selected local authorities and hospitals. When all the returns are received we shall certainly consider publication.—[Vol. 780, c.206–7.]
