HC Deb 06 December 1979 vol 975 c308W
Mr. Hannan

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services, pursuant to his reply to the question of the hon. Member for Exeter on 20 November, in view of the variation in the perinatal mortality rate between area health authorities, what consultations his Department will be having with authorities with areas with a high rate about their plans to improve ante-natal care.

Dr. Vaughan

As the matter is a complex one, I am writing to my hon. Friend about it.
