HC Deb 29 March 1971 vol 814 c1121
1. Mr. Nicholas Edwards

asked the Secretary of State for Wales whether he will now publish the comments sent to him by the Welsh Hospital Board about the report prepared for his Department on the hospital service in Pembrokeshire.

The Secretary of State for Wales (Mr. Peter Thomas)

I do not propose to publish the detailed comments I have received on the report. I am studying these comments and I will write to the bodies concerned as soon as possible.

Mr. Edwards

I thank my right hon. and learned Friend for that reply. Is he aware that there will be disappointment that the comments will not be published, and that it is now more than two and a half months since the report was prepared and one and a half months since those comments were received? When can we expect action on the recommendations of the report?

Mr. Peter Thomas

The recommendations and the report as a whole have been well received, and I know that people are anxious to hear my views, which I hope to make known very soon.
