HC Deb 24 July 1979 vol 971 c120W
35. Mr. Hooley

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services what discussions he has had with the Association of County Councils about improving the standards of personal social services.

Sir George Young

The personal social services, and other local authority services, have been the subject of general discussions which I and my colleagues have had with the local authority associations at recent meetings of the consultative council on local government finance. In addition, I shall be discussing the personal social services situation with the Association of County Councils and the Association of Metropolitan Authorities as soon as a mutually convenient date can be arranged.
