§ Mr. McQuarrie
asked the Secretary of State for Social Services if it is his intention to bring in legislation in the life of 309W the present Parliament for the registration of chiropodists; what is his view of the large number of unqualified chiropodists operating in Great Britain; and whether this is a potential danger to health when the lack of adequate qualifications could lead to serious injury due to bad treatment.
§ Dr. vaughan
I refer my hon. Friend to my reply to my hon. Friend the Member for Anglesey (Mr. Best) on 11 June.—[Vol. 968, c.96.] We have had few complaints about the work standards of unregistered chiropodists in the private sector. I would be glad to consider any representations which are made to me about the present position of chiropody in this country.
