§ Mr. Hannam
asked the Secretary of State for Social Services what ministerial or other visits have been made from his Department during the past five years to the Institute for Motor Disorders in Budapest; and if he has any plans to make any visits.
§ Mr. Whitney
As I explained in my reply to my hon. Friend the Member for Rugby and Kenilworth on 23 April at columns162–163, my right hon. and learned Friend the Member for Rushcliffe (Mr. Clarke), the then Minister of State for Health, visited the Peto education and training institute in Budapest in November 1984. No other visits by Ministers or officials from the Department have been made during the last five years, nor are there plans at present for any such visits. However, the possible desirability of such a visit will be considered in the context of the current discussions with the Spastics Society about its proposed study of conductive education in this country.
