HC Deb 12 February 1973 vol 850 cc280-1W
Mrs. Lena Jeger

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services what representations he has received from psychiatric social workers employed in hospitals about their future under the reorganised health service; and what reply he has sent.

Sir K. Joseph

My Department has received a number of letters from both psychiatric and medical social workers, and a deputation, expressing concern about proposals for their future employment. I have replied that their views will be considered most carefully before I take a decision on these proposals.
