HC Deb 25 February 1986 vol 92 cc524-5W
41. Mr. Parry

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services what guidance has been given by his Department to local offices and local authority social services departments concerning the danger of hypothermia among the aged and the very young.

Mr. Newton

Revised guidance was issued in October 1985 to local office staff to assist them in identifying potential hypothermia sufferers. That guidance is contained in paras 53 and 54 of appendix 23 to the "S Manual", a copy of which is in the library.
