§ 30. Mr. Haselhurst
asked the Secretary of State for Social Services whether he is satisfied with the liaison between the network of social service departments and voluntary bodies.
§ Sir K. Joseph
My impression is that local authorities generally are concerned to secure effective liaison, but I am aware that changes in local government boundaries from next April will necessitate new arrangements for liaison in many places, and I hope that all new local authorities will give careful attention to this aspect of their social services responsibilities as soon as they are in a position to do so.
