HC Deb 29 March 1973 vol 853 c392W
Q19. Mrs. Castle

asked the Prime Minister if he is satisfied with the coordination between the Department of Health and Social Security and the Department of the Environment in securing a proper relationship between the reorganisation of local government and the reorganisation of the National Health Service.

The Prime Minister

Yes. Apart from certain special cases we intend the new health authorities to cover the same areas as the local authorities responsible for the personal social services and education so as to achieve the most effective collaboration between them.
