§ Dr. Mawhinney
asked the Secretary of State for Social Services if he has received the report of the working party on lead; and if he will make a statement.
§ Dr. Vaughan
I shall shortly receive the working party's report and am arranging for it to be published by the end of March 1980. I am grateful to Professor Lawther and his colleagues for their dedicated work in this complex field and am arranging for the earliest possible consideration to be given to the working party's conclusions.
