Mr. Greville Janner

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services whether she will extend the mobility allowance to persons who are suffering from agoraphobia and are unable to get to work without the use of personal transport.

subject to her authorisation, to accommodate and treat private patients as provided for under Part I, Section 1, subsections (1) and (2) and Part I, Section 2, subsection (1) of the Health Services and Public Health Act 1968.

Dr. Owen:

Area Health Authorities and boards of governors make authorised accommodation and services available to private patients in accordance with these provisions. They are expected to exercise this function with proper regard for their over-riding responsibility for NH services.
