Orders of the Day — Clause 45. — (Local Health Authorities.) (1 Apr 1963)

Miss Patricia Hornsby-Smith: ...Service committees. As I understand it, they will still be appointed by the Ministry, as they have always been. These are quite distinct from the local health authority committees which deal with child welfare clinics, dental services and so on. The executive committees, on the other hand, have never been appointed by local authorities. They are bodies formed of the four professional...

Telecommunication Space Satellite (29 Mar 1963)

Mr Frederick Farey-Jones: ...pictorial presentation by Telstar satellites of creeds and ideas. Hundreds of millions of people will simultaneously each day assimilate on their screens lectures on such varied subjects as hygiene, child welfare, food, medicine, agriculture, the rotation of crops, and the conquest of disease. Is there any other way to elevate the lives of the backward peoples of the world? Only those...

Orders of the Day — CHILDREN AND YOUNG PERSONS BILL [Lords] (27 Feb 1963)

Mr James MacColl: ...Leeds, South-East and the hon. Lady the Member for Plymouth, Devonport (Miss Vickers) about the N.S.P.C.C. No one is saying that the Society should not continue to play an active part in relation to child welfare. That is not the point. I am not one of those who have been engaged in a feud with the N.S.P.C.C., like Sir Basil Henriques and other magistrates have. I am fairly neutral. But...

Orders of the Day — CRIMINAL JUSTICE (SCOTLAND) BILL [Lords] (21 Feb 1963)

Mr Thomas Steele: ...other has come along to tackle it; there has been another problem tackled by someone else, and so it has gone on. The apparatus has, at it were, developed in sections. We have the local authority's child welfare officers, the inspectors of the N.S.P.C.C., the approved school welfare officers, the after care service for borstal and prison, the probation officers, the Council of Social...

Orders of the Day — London Government Bill: Clause 1. — (London Boroughs.) (24 Jan 1963)

Mr Michael Maitland Stewart: ...as there is any reasonable way of judging their opinion, we can properly conclude that Londoners are opposed, because that principle applied to London means taking the county services in education, child welfare, health, welfare of all kinds— now highly integrated and very efficient services—and breaking them up on a borough basis. I am sure that the Minister knows quite well that if...

London Government Bill: Clause 1. — (London Boroughs.) (23 Jan 1963)

Mr Robert Mellish: ...? At present, local authorities are divided into a number of committees—public health, housing, and so on—and with the extra work being placed upon them they will have even more committees; for child welfare, the mentally handicapped and especially for dealing with the elderly. Is all this additional work to be thrown on to fewer councillors? My hon. Friend the Member for Stepney (Mr....

Voluntary Overseas Services (12 Dec 1962)

Mr Dick Taverne: ...in agriculture, nursing, teaching in high schools, and that of veterinary surgeons, which is very useful there, and, for women, in addition to the other qualifications which they may have, help with child welfare clinics and handicrafts, which are particularly valuable in the smaller communities. They found that in regard to qualifications, in India and Pakistan, only people with special...

London Government Bill (11 Dec 1962)

Sir Leslie Plummer: ...not flexibility. It is a one-way stretch. It is not working in the interests of ensuring that both the London inner and outer boroughs are doing their jobs properly. The Bill also proposes to make child welfare a wholly borough service. Supposing the experience of the next few years shows that the Home Secretary is not satisfied with the service given in this respect? Supposing that the...

Orders of the Day — London Government Bill (10 Dec 1962)

Miss Patricia Hornsby-Smith: ...people, to be thought to have citizens and to be able to provide elected members who are capable and responsible to deal with the vital social problems, be they education, welfare or maternity and child welfare, when one comes to the very politically-conscious area of London and the Home Counties, our citizens, our elected representatives and vast boroughs—which, in this case, will range...

Queen's Speech (30 Oct 1962)

Mr Hugh Gaitskell: ...I see a reference in the Gracious Speech to improving the services provided by local authorities for children's welfare. I am glad to hear that, but why then, in that case, break up one of the best child welfare services in the country? All who work for it—and plenty of those are not Labour people —are proud of the service and believe and know that it is one of the best services in the...

Orders of the Day — NORTHERN IRELAND BILL [Lords] (1 May 1962)

Sir Frank Soskice: ...of considering the Bill. The other provision is one to which I believe the Solicitor-General made passing reference. That relates to a recommendation made by the Report of the Northern Ireland Child Welfare Council on the Operation of Juvenile Courts in Northern Ireland. Its recommendation, which it urged strongly, is set out on page 18 of its Report, at paragraph 41, and I think that I...

Orders of the Day — London Government (20 Feb 1962)

Mr Michael Cliffe: ...and a Committee of the L.C.C. agreed that a number of the health services should be returned to the Metropolitan boroughs. This was in 1955, and the agreement included such services as maternity and child welfare, health visitors and a number of others. Some of the powers were conferment powers and some were delegated powers. But this agreement has never been put into effect, because the...

Orders of the Day — London Government (19 Feb 1962)

Mr Michael Maitland Stewart: ...only to his own ignorance. Let us now take another service, the children's service, the most appealing and intimate of all the human services. This, of course, is not the service of maternity and child welfare but of children in the care of local authorities. The Minister said nothing at all about it and the White Paper says precious little about it. Here again, as in housing, we find...

Orders of the Day — London Government (19 Feb 1962)

Mr Robert Mellish: ...a proper service to the people. I have never known a borough council so busy. It is true that it can do with the other powers which have been mentioned, such as in connection with maternity and child welfare, a service which it could do efficiently, but I know of no London borough which has asked for the powers that the Minister now proposes to give. I know of no London borough which has...

Scotland (Welfare Foods): Welfare Foods (13 Feb 1962)

...Health Service leaflet on maternity care is being revised. This leaflet is sent by National Insurance offices to all expectant mothers, along with milk tokens It is also available in maternity and child welfare clinics. It is available to general practitioners and to hospitals in their maternity and children's departments. The revised leaflet will not be sent out until June, but early...

Oral Answers to Questions — Ministry of Health: Welfare Clinics (12 Feb 1962)

Miss Edith Pitt: I am absolutely certain from my experience of local authorities, that maternity and child welfare clinics provide an excellent service. Contrary to what my hon. and gallant Friend has stated, attendance at these clinics continues to increase.

Housing Bill: Clause 5. — (Subsidies for Flats, Expensive Sites and Agricultural Dwellings.) (27 Jun 1961)

Mrs Eirene White: ...the welfare of children, and it is from that point of view that I approach the question. I am well aware that the right hon. Gentleman, in his Ministerial capacity, has no direct responsibility for child welfare; that is a matter for the Ministers of Education and Health, according to the age of the child. But, equally, he has no direct responsibility for the welfare of old people, but...

Oral Answers to Questions — ST. Helena: Nutritional Standards (W.H.O. Report) (13 Jun 1961)

...has been resumed.(vi) Ascorbic acid deficiency. Ascorbic acid is administered where there is evidence of deficiency.(vii) Children's growth. Height and weight records are kept.(viii) Maternity and child welfare. The instruction of mothers in the preparation of dried milk and the feeding of infants has been intensified.A great part of Government resources has been devoted to improvement in...

Welfare Foods (19 Apr 1961)

Miss Edith Pitt: We have taken professional advice within our own Department. That brings me to the part that the welfare foods have played in our improved maternity and child welfare care. There has been a big improvement during and since the war. Whatever figures or indices hon. Members choose to take, this will be seen to be so. All the relevant figures prove that there has been a steady decline in our...
