HC Deb 25 April 1972 vol 835 c232W
35. Mr. Golding

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services what criteria are applied when deciding whether a National Health Service expectant mother should have epidural anaesthetisation.

Mr. Alison

As I said in my reply to the hon. Member on 21st April, the anaesthetic procedure to be used is a matter for decision by the clinician in charge of the patient.—[Vol. 835, c.172.]
