HC Deb 20 May 1974 vol 874 c51W
Mr. George Grant

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services if she is satisfied with the advice and guidance issued by her Department on the handling of aggressive patients in mental hospitals; and if she will make a statement.

Dr. Owen

There is a need for more comprehensive guidance and my Department is collaborating with the Royal College of Nursing and the Royal College of Psychiatrists in the production of appropriate advice for authorities, doctors and nurses.
