HC Deb 03 December 1984 vol 69 c79W
Mr. Proctor

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services if he will list in the Official Report all those local authorities which under the Mental Health Act 1983 have not so far appointed an approved social worker under the Act; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. John Patten

We are aware of only one, the London borough of Hackney, and appointments in that authority are understood to be imminent.
