HC Deb 25 July 1988 vol 138 c131W
Mr. Atkinson

To ask the Secretary of State for Social Services if, pursuant to his answer of 22 April,Official Report, column 596, on the future of the chiropody service and profession, he is now able to make a further statement.

Mrs. Currie

There are a number of issues which need to be resolved and discussions on these are likely to take some time. We recognise the importance of foot care for large numbers of people, particularly the elderly, and our efforts are directed towards a better and more accessible service in future.
