Mr. J. Griffiths
asked the Minister of Health whether he has yet received the proposals of the Carmarthenshire County Council under the provisions of the Midwives Act; whether he is aware that considerable dissatisfaction exists within the county at the inadequacy of the county council's proposals; and what action he proposes to take in the matter?
Sir K. Wood
I have received these proposals and they are under consideration. I understand that some dissatisfaction has been expressed with the proposals, but I would remind the hon. Member that under the Act certain bodies have the right to make representations to me within a period of two months after the proposals have been submitted. That period has not yet expired.
