§ 35. Mr. Hooley
asked the Secretary of State for Social Services what discussions he has had with the Association of County Councils about improving the standards of personal social services.
§ Sir George Young
The personal social services, and other local authority services, have been the subject of general discussions which I and my colleagues have had with the local authority associations at recent meetings of the consultative council on local government finance. In addition, I shall be discussing the personal social services situation with the Association of County Councils and the Association of Metropolitan Authorities as soon as a mutually convenient date can be arranged.
