HC Deb 22 December 1981 vol 15 cc379-80W
35. Mr. Alton

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services whether he proposed to hold an inquiry into the case of Anthony D. Mitchell, a baby of six months, following representations made to him by the hon. Member for Liverpool, Edge Hill, on 1 December, in relation to the treatment given to the baby at Mill Road maternity hospital.

Mr. Geoffrey Finsberg

The Liverpool area health authority (teaching) is still investigating the facts concerning the treatment given to this child. It is within its powers to set up an inquiry if it considers it appropriate to do so.
