HC Deb 23 May 1989 vol 153 c485W
63. Mr. O'Brien

To ask the Secretary of State for Health what information he has received from the Wakefield family practitioner committee on action taken to help the homeless and rootless; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Mellor

The family practitioner committee has secured the provision of general medical services on the one official travellers' camp in the Wakefield area. The service, which began on 5 April using the Wakefield health authority's mobile clinic, is provided by a local doctor supported by community nursing staff. No other problems have been encountered.
