New Clause. — (Delegation of powers by county council to council of borough.) (22 Jul 1946)

Mr Aneurin Bevan: ..., and the welfare of the individual would he left very far behind. I agree that what we must do is to try to keep the supervision of the health service itself, particularly the maternity and child welfare service, as local as possible. Provision is made for that in the Bill. Provision is made for county and county boroughs to have sub-committees on which the local authorities in the area...

Clause 19. — (Local health authorities.) (22 Jul 1946)

Mr Henry Willink: ...case to no less than 350,000 and in a number of cases to well over 200,000, it seems fantastic that authorities with that population should not be considered fit to be entrusted with maternity and child welfare, with health visiting, with home nursing, domestic help, and matters of that kind. The Minister made an excuse that this would put him into a difficulty with the non-county...

Orders of the Day — National Health Service Bill (2 May 1946)

Mr James Reid: ...principle of sanity the Minister is to split the public health services in two, with the hospitals under one regime, and all other public health services under another. The matter of maternity and child welfare has already been thrashed out. I refer to it only as the best example of the confusion which will undoubtedly occur if this proposal goes through. I find that even more alarming...

National Health Service [Money] (2 May 1946)

Sir Eric Fletcher: ...Act, 1929. Put shortly, the position is this. Prior to 1929, local authorities were responsible for certain health services such as tuberculosis, mental deficiency, venereal diseases, maternity and child welfare and other matters, in respect of which they received a contribution or subvention from the Exchequer equal, in most cases, to 50 per cent. of their expenditure, and in the case of...

Orders of the Day — National Health Service Bill (1 May 1946)

Mr Henry Willink: ...which stuck out as being most necessary. In addition, it was most urgently desirable that consultant and specialist services should be available. Wherever we looked, in the field of maternity and child welfare, or in a field which has not so far been mentioned in the Debate, the care of the old, in which immensely more needs to be done than has been done in the past, there was room for...

Orders of the Day — National Health Service Bill (30 Apr 1946)

Mr Aneurin Bevan: ...general practitioner cannot afford the apparatus necessary for a proper diagnosis in his own surgery. This will be available at the health centre. The health centre may well be the maternity and child welfare clinic of the local authority also. The provision of the health centre is, therefore, imposed as a duty on the local authority. There has been criticism that this creates a...

Orders of the Day — Labour's Programme. (30 Apr 1946)

Sir Frederick Messer: ...believed in the necessity for continuity in health services. What has happened in the past, and what is happening now, is quite wrong. A woman, when she is to have a baby, goes to the maternity and child welfare clinic of the urban district or municipal borough, but that authority has no power whatever to ensure that she should have a hospital bed. It may be a difficult case, in which...

Oral Answers to Questions — Day Nurseries (Grant) (14 Mar 1946)

Mr Aneurin Bevan: Welfare authorities have had power to provide day nurseries as a maternity and child welfare service since 1918. That service is normally assisted by the Exchequer only through the block grant. But for the abnormal circumstances, including the needs of industry of the present time, the special Exchequer grant promised from 1st April could not have been justified. The rate of that grant is...

Orders of the Day — Rickets (11 Feb 1946)

Mr Charles Key: ...of the national compound, and that great attention should be given to instructing them on the importance of vitamin D. Through whatever organisations we could use—the B.B.C., the maternity and child welfare centres, and so on—such advice and publicity has been given. They also made recommendations that vitamin D should be added, as my hon. Friend has said, to national dried milk, and...

...from 13 to 18 months. Full cream milk powder is rationed to children from 19 months to five years at the rate of 2 lb. per child per month and to all children between five and 14 registered with the Child Welfare Scheme—some 10,000—at the rate of half a pint a day.

Orders of the Day — National Health (12 Jun 1945)

Commander Thomas Galbraith: ...known to the local authorities—to offer these war-time nurseries to the authorities subject to an appropriate financial adjustment for their use. They may be used either as nursery schools or as child welfare nurseries. The education and public health authorities are being asked to consider these various alternatives. Again, the hon. Member asked a question as to the upward trend of...

War-Time Nurseries (9 Mar 1945)

Dame Florence Horsbrugh: ...that we have lately set up a committee to go into the whole matter of the teaching of parentcraft. A good deal of work of that kind can, I think, be done after the war through the maternity and child welfare centres. Attached to many of these centres are rooms in which the children can play while the mothers attend lectures and discussion groups—an important feature which, I think,...

Orders of the Day — Family Allowances Bill (8 Mar 1945)

Sir William Jowitt: ...want to help them to discharge that obligation as they would desire. I beg the House not to consider this Bill in isolation but in its complete setting, with ante-natal services, maternity services, child welfare, school meals and National Health services. Still, after we have made every allowance for those schemes, not only as they are to-day but as we want to see them developed, there...

Local Government White Paper (Reconstruction) (15 Feb 1945)

Mr Henry Willink: ...have more natural interest, and often more expert knowledge, than men. This is certainly the case with large sections of the health services; it is certainly the case with housing and maternity and child welfare; and not least with a subject which has attracted the attention of Members of this House in recent weeks and months. the care of children who have no normal home life. I hope...

Local Government White Paper (Reconstruction) (15 Feb 1945)

Sir Frederick Messer: ...applies to gas, water, land drainage and things of that kind that do not touch the individual as such. Then we come to what might be termed the purely human services—education, health, maternity, child welfare and care of the mentally afflicted. Here we face a problem that must be resolved. We must recognise that to get efficiency it may be necessary to have a large unit, but if we do...

Orders of the Day — Colonial Development and Welfare Bill (7 Feb 1945)

Mr John Dugdale: ...in 1937, 481 doctors, and in Northern Rhodesia the number of doctors was only 20, and the number of orderlies, who might for this purpose be considered as doctors, 150, making in all 170. Passing to child welfare work, in Turkmenistan there were something like 6,000 creches for children, and at the time of the Pym Report, which is admittedly a little out of date, there was practically no...

Orders of the Day — Social Insurance (3 Nov 1944)

Mr Kenneth Lindsay: ...the Report. Then the Chancellor of the Exchequer, during a Debate, said there were "many things besides meals at schools" which Come into this service. The Home Secretary referred to "a Charter of Child Welfare." These are big phrases and very general phrases, and as we get on with these Debates we shall, I hope, become more and more particular. To-day my right hon. Friend has become a...

Oral Answers to Questions — Residential Nurseries (26 Oct 1944)

Mr Henry Willink: There are about 3,000 children in residential nurseries maintained or aided by public assistance authorities and a small additional number in nurseries maintained by maternity and child welfare authorities. I regret that I cannot state either the total number of staff engaged in these nurseries or the average weekly cost per child. In addition, there are 407 residential nurseries with...
