HC Deb 13 November 1970 vol 806 cc271-2W
Mrs. Doris Fisher

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment if he is satisfied that baths with built-in seat provided in old people's dwellings are proving satisfactory in use; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Amery

I do not know how extensively sitz baths are used. They seem to suit some old people but not others. As with any bath for old people, care must be taken to set the bath so that the rim is not too high from the floor for an older person to climb in.
