HC Deb 18 July 1989 vol 157 c133W
Mr. Alton

To ask the Secretary of State for Health what changes to social work practice, in particular a client's right to access to a file, he intends to make following the successful appeal of Mr. Graham Gaskin to the European Court of Human Rights.

Mr. Mellor

In the light of the court's judgment in this case, we are taking a careful look at the present general arrangements for social arrangements for social services clients to have access to their files to see whether any changes are needed.
