HC Deb 15 May 1985 vol 79 c161W
Mr. David Atkinson

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services when he expects to make a decision on the future of the chiropody profession.

Mr. Kenneth Clarke

We are still considering the result of discussions we had last year with interested professional bodies. However those discussions failed to produce any clear consensus of opinion within the chiropody profession and are not likely to lead to any significant changes. We do not propose to introduce any legislation on the subject.
