HC Deb 25 July 1986 vol 102 c739W
Dr. Marek

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services what estimate he makes of the weekly time children needing speech therapy receive; and if he has any plans to increase it.

Mr. Whitney

Information about individual treatment is not held centrally. Professional staff determine the time needed for therapy for individual patients. It is for health authorities to decide the total amount of speech therapy time that can be made available for children in the light of assessments of need and their current resoucres.
