HC Deb 27 June 1989 vol 155 c427W
21. Mr. Hinchliffe

To ask the Secretary of State for Health what is his policy on head inspections in schools by health authority nursing staff.

Mr. Freeman

Responsibility for the control of headlice infection among pupils rests with the individual health authorities through the school health service. It is for them to determine the policy for dealing with this problem in the light of local circumstances.
