HC Deb 29 April 1982 vol 22 cc336-7W
Mr. Ashley

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services why it took over two months to reply to a letter to the then Minister for Health from the right hon. Member for Stoke-on-Trent, South about health education and the prevention of handicap.

Mr. Geoffrey Finsberg

The letter forwarded by the right hon. Member raised a number of issues, each of which needed to be considered separately.
