Yes, Sir, and I entirely agree with my hon. Friend. [HON. MEMBERS: "Oh."] Hon. Members opposite have no need to say "Oh" because I have always believed in giving credit where it is due. Just as my own county council has a splendid record in the welfare sector, so it is true to say that Middlesex County Council has an excellent record in the provision of mental health services.
On the second point raised by my hon. Friend, I can assure him that we are confident that the community mental health services now provided by Middlesex County Council will be developed still further by the London boroughs which are due to succeed the County Council in April, 1965.
