§ 18. Mr. Hamilton
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what progress has been made in the talks designed to effect improvements in conditions at doctors' surgeries.
It has now been arranged that executive councils in Scotland will undertake a review of consulting accommodation in all areas where adequate arrangements for this purpose have not already been instituted.
§ Mr. Hamilton
Can the Minister give us any indication when some positive action will be taken in this matter? Is he aware that there are complaints about unsatisfactory conditions in surgeries, and that some firm action is necessary?
I cannot give any assurance. I know what the situation is, and I hope that the executive councils will get on as quickly as possible.
