Oral Answers to Questions — Social Services: Maternity and Child Welfare Centre, Manchester (1 Dec 1970)

Maternity and Child Welfare Centre, Manchester

Orders of the Day — National Health Service (Future Structure) (23 Mar 1970)

Dr John Dunwoody: ...other information. The chief community physician would be responsible for organising many of the personal health services at present run by the medical officers of health, such as maternity and child welfare, vaccination and immunisation programmes, the provision of health centres, health education and other preventive work. He would also be involved in arrangements for the school health...

Local Authority Social Services Bill (26 Feb 1970)

Mr William Molloy: ...of social services should have high on his priority list a liaison officer to work with the voluntary organisations. I have some sympathy with the arguments put forward for taking the entire child welfare services and putting them into this once and for all. I am not attracted by the argument of leaving them within the Home Office and my right hon. Friend did not go at great length or...

Petitions: Cruelty to Infants (25 Jul 1969)

Miss Joan Lestor: ...or a doctor, but that as someone who has been involved in teaching and caring for young children for some time I have a far greater interest in this subject than many laymen concerned with child welfare. I take the opportunity to raise this matter in the House because the House, as well as being a legislative body, is, I believe, a public forum in which matters of social interest with...

Orders of the Day — Scotland (Family Planning) (23 Jul 1969)

Mr Edwin Brooks: If my hon. Friend presses me to say whether I am absolutely certain, I say "Yes" to him. It seems to me that there are bound to be a proportion of pregnancies and abortions which arise because of inadequate knowledge of, and facilities for, family planning. It seems quite evident that this is so. If there were facilities available to provide accurate and up to date information there would...

Orders of the Day — Children and Young Persons Bill (11 Mar 1969)

Mr Paul Rose: ...has a great deal to offer. It has much valuable experience of children in trouble. I see no reason why we should not draw on the different types of experience of the probation officers and of child welfare officers. I see no reason to oppose the suggestion of the panel of Manchester magistrates that they should be entitled to have investigations made by the probation service if they so...

Clause 27: Supervision and Care of Persons Put on Probation or Released from Prisons, etc. (17 Jul 1968)

Mr Bruce Millan: ...and responsibilities all placed within the one department, would go if the local authorities were to split it up and decide that the probation service might be combined with something else and the child welfare service with something else. If we are looking at varieties of combination between one authority and another, we should do so in the context of all the services that are taken into...

Schedule 8: SOCIAL WORK (SCOTLAND) BILL [Lords] (17 Jul 1968)

Mr Jock Bruce-Gardyne: ...qualifications of these officers. In Committee, the Under-Secretary reminded hon. Members that the Kilbrandon Report favoured a combination of legal qualifications and administrative experience in child welfare and educational ser-vices and very fairly added: … one has only to say that to see that the number of people who have in fact that kind of background must be very small...

Orders of the Day — SOCIAL WORK (SCOTLAND) BILL [Lords] (6 May 1968)

Mr Hector Monro: ...something more exciting. In the Kilbrandon Report it was suggested that the reporter should be an officer combining a legal qualification with a period of administrative experience relating to the child welfare and educational services". I do not think many people, men or women, will fulfil those exacting qualifi- cations. Who will be the chairmen and members of the panels? What training...

Oral Answers to Questions — Ministry of Health: Pre-School Child (11 Dec 1967)

Mr John Hill: ...of the pre-school child are not sufficiently catered for and perhaps not sufficiently realised? Therefore, in my view and, I hope, that of the Minister, the Yudkin Report, supported by numerous child welfare societies, has made out an overwhelming case for a Government inquiry.

Minimum Income (24 Nov 1967)

Miss Joan Lestor: ...the question of unregistered child minding and the problems involved, because many tragedies and inadequacies have been discovered. A recent report of a panel headed by Mr. Simon Yudkin, engaged on child welfare, highlighted one fact that at another time I hope to press the Minister of Health about very strongly, namely, that in our deprived areas, and in the twilight areas in particular,...

Care of the Elderly (11 Jul 1967)

Mr Maurice Macmillan: ...Mrs. Robb's allegations, and I came to the conclusion that it was because they were merely an extreme example of the harshness of the impact of the State on the individual. In housing cases, in child welfare cases and in other matters of which each of us has experience in handling constituency cases, authority as such is callous. In considering the special problems of the old, we must...

Health Check Weeks (14 Jun 1967)

Mr Julian Snow: ...come from concentrating on certain groups known to be vulnerable rather than routine screening at regular intervals of the public as a whole. Screening tests are widely used in the maternity and child welfare services. Mothers are screened at ante-natal and post-natal clinics for a wide range of conditions. Young babies are screened for phenylketonuria, hearing defects and other...

Vietnam (21 Apr 1967)

Mr Gwynfor Evans: ...may have had the January issue of the American magazine, Ramparts, which carries a large article, to which Dr. Benjamin Spock has written a preface. Dr. Spock is a world renowned authority on child welfare and child education. These are the first words of his preface: A million children have been killed or wounded or burned in the war America is carrying on in Vietnam, according to the...

Orders of the Day — Primary Education (Plowden Report) (16 Mar 1967)

Mr John Hill: ...someone to take temporary care of their children by day. The difficulties and deprivations of many children under five go well beyond education. I have seen the Report of a Working Party of the Child Welfare Societies which I hope will soon be published. It will merit detailed examination and subsequent action by the various Government Departments concerned. The period up to 5 can be...

Orders of the Day — National Health Service (Family Planning) Bill (17 Feb 1967)

Mr Edwin Brooks: ...week that preceded the outbreak of the General Strike, that Lord Buckmaster moved a Resolution in another place which sought to remove all obstac to the introduction of birth control in n nity and child welfare centres. The noble Lords on that occasion passed the Resolution by 57 votes to 44, becoming the first legislative body in the world to define responsible parenthood as a legitimate...

Local Government (Rate Support and General Grant) (20 Dec 1966)

Mr Arthur Jones: ...concern that they cannot be implemented without serious damage to many local government services. I am sure that reduced expenditure will affect the planning departments, the domiciliary services, child welfare and important new work in connection with the resettlement of families with particular difficulties. I see that two hon. Members representing Bedfordshire constituencies are...

Orders of the Day — Hospitals (Redditch) (9 Aug 1966)

Mr Charles Loughlin: ...engaged in maternity services have set up local maternity liaison committees. The Worcestershire County Council's revised 10-year programme includes the provision at Redditch of maternity and child welfare clinics, and I am glad to say that the Redditch Development Corporation is collaborating closely with the County Council in planning domiciliary maternity services. Sites have...

Crime (8 Aug 1966)

Mr David Ensor: ...a completely separate department in their ministries of justice devoted entirely to dealing with juveniles, with the ultimate intention that they should be kept from committing offences. There are child welfare boards in those countries. The countries are split into areas so that those boards are in a position to know a great deal about the children within their jurisdiction. I was very...

Orders of the Day — Orthoptists (25 Jul 1966)

Mr Charles Loughlin: ...though no smaller than some of the professions already included under the Act, and the draft Order may affect no more than 400 people. Most orthoptists are employed in hospitals and local authority child welfare and school health clinics, and for the most part their patients are children. This is virtually an entirely female profession. The Professions Supplementary to Medicine Act...
