HC Deb 03 July 1978 vol 953 c69W
Mr. Hardy

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services if he is satisfied with the co-ordination of medical and social services in the case of the children at the Hoden family in the Rother Valley constituency who are suffering from the Laurence-Moon-Biedl syndrome; and if he will advise the area health authority to arrange a formal inquiry without delay.

Mr. Moyle

I am not aware of any failure of co-ordination in this case. Once all known medical information on the children has been assembled the area health authority will decide whether or not to hold a formal inquiry.
