HC Deb 27 May 1982 vol 24 cc385-6W
Mr. David Atkinson

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services if he will make a statement about the future of the public health laboratory service.

Mr. Geoffrey Finsberg

The public health laboratory service is administered by a board set up under legislation consolidated in section 5 of the National Health Service Act 1977 as amended by the Public Health Laboratory Service Act 1979, and I expect these arrangements to continue.
