HC Deb 10 January 1990 vol 164 cc658-9W
Mr. Hannam

To ask the Secretary of State for Health if his Department has issued revised guidelines concerning section 29 of the National Assistance Act 1948; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Freeman

Circulars were issued to local authorities in 1974 following changes made by the Local Government Act 1972. It has not been found necessary since then to issue revised guidelines.
