Mr Reginald Freeson: I would like to pursue the point made by the hon. Member for Basing-stoke (Mr. Mitchell) before going on to deal with other aspects of the subject.

Mentally Handicapped Children (18 Feb 1966)

Mr Reginald Freeson: My hon. Friend said that it was recommended in 1962 that local authorities should establish registers and he said that some, and possibly most, had started them.
