Mr. Alison

The Health Education Council is considering the possibility of mounting a limited and experimental campaign using television and other media to draw attention to the availability of family planning services in a selected area of the country. Before launching such a campaign, the Health Education Council will be consulting medical officers of health, family doctors and National Health Service authorities. It is anticipated that the campaign will be run in the latter half of this year and that its cost will be in the region of £50,000.
