asked the Secretary of State for Social Services whether, in the light of the evidence sent her by the hon. Member for Stockport, South, she is satisfied with the co-ordination between hospital authorities and the local government social services in matters relating to the care of old and/or incapacitated people.
The Area Health Authority is investigating the particular case which my hon. Friend raised with me and I will write to him. We are doing everything we can to improve co-ordination between health and local authorities.
