HC Deb 16 November 1982 vol 32 c132W
Mr. Carter-Jones

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services (1) when the minimum standards in obstetric and neonatal care will be made available for consultation;

(2) if the evidence submitted to the maternity services advisory committee during its consideration of the minimum standards of obstetrics and neonatal care will be published during the consultation period.

Mr. Kenneth Clarke

The maternity services advisory committee was asked to consider a paper setting out the Department's preliminary ideas on this subject, and offered a number of comments. I am considering the next steps in the light of its advice.
