HC Deb 06 April 1950 vol 473 c1349
41. Mr. Boyd-Carpenter

asked the Minister of Health on what date direct consultation took place between the South-West Metropolitan Hospital Board and the Kingston Group Management Committee on the subject of and prior to the recent decision of the Board not to reappoint the chairman and three members of the committee; and whether he is satisfied that the provisions as to consultation of Part II of the Third Schedule of the National Health Service Act, 1946, were complied with.

Mr. Bevan

I understand that the Regional Board wrote to the Management Committee on 29th December, 1949, and the Management Committee replied on 16th January, 1950. I see no reason to doubt that the provisions of the Act were complied with.
