HC Deb 11 January 1977 vol 923 c450W
42. Mr. Molloy

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services when he proposes to meet the leaders of the postal workers and health service employees, as promised in the debate on the Second Reading of the Social Services (Miscellaneous Provisions) Bill.

Mr. Ennals

My right hon. Friend the Minister for Social Security met the National Federation of Professional Workers on 9th December 1976, and he and I met representatives of the Post Office Engineering Union and the Council of Post Office Unions on 15th December 1976 and saw a delegation from the TUC on 20th December 1976.

44. Mr. Spriggs

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services what suggestions he has received from community health councils about raising finance for the Health Service; and whether he has offered any encouragement in his reply.

Mr. Ennals

I know of only one community health council which has raised this question. Fund-raising is not one of the activities which my Department has encouraged community health councils to pursue.
