Mr. Tom Ellis
asked the Secretary of State for Wales whether he has received any petition signed by citizens in Wales complaining of the lack of provision of homoeopathic medical treatment in any part of Wales; and what action he intends to take.
§ Mr. John Morris
A number of people in West Wales petitioned me on this subject earlier this year. Any qualified general practitioner may provide homoeopathic treatment with the patient's consent but not many choose to do so. Whether facilities for homoeopathic treatment are provided in hospitals in Wales is for area health authorities to decide in the light of local needs.
