HC Deb 13 February 1985 vol 73 c205W
15. Mr. MacKenzie

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if he will prepare and present to Parliament, for discussion, a White Paper on the care of the elderly in Scotland.

Mr. Younger

I recognise the care of the elderly as a major requirement in the allocation of public sector resources in the fields of health, housing and social work. I see no need at present to revise the strategy for these services set out in the White Paper "Growing Older", which was published in March 1981.
