AnnotationDebate on the needs of older people, initiated by Mrs Anne Kerr, "That this House recognises that many and varied problems which arise as people grow older; calls attention to the inadequacy of the provisions and services for old age; emphasises the desirability of doing more to enable elderly people to continue living in the community in comfort, independence and dignity; urges the Government to bring forward measures for improving and co-ordinating more effectively existing social services; and also asks the Government to investigate what additional benefits and services for the elderly might be made available". During the debate, Douglas Houghton (Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster) referred to a survey being supported by the Government and "set on foot, and largely financed by the National Corporation for the Care of Old People [NCCOP] into the needs and requirements of domiciliary services, including housing". The motion was agreed to. (RH).
