asked the Minister of Health whether he still expects the Registrar General's special study into the regional differences in infant mortality to be published by mid-1966.

Can the hon. Gentleman amplify his Answer a little more? Is the report likely to be available in the earlier part of the summer, or in the later part?

I do not think that one can amplify the Answer to this Question. I was merely asked whether I "still expect". We do expect and hope that the report will be published in mid-1966. We hope to get it as soon as possible.
