§ 22. Mr. Bidwell
asked the Secretary of State for Social Services if he has replied to a letter from the London borough of Ealing concerning boundaries of area health authorities, dated 5th October ; and if he will make a statement.
§ Sir K. Joseph
Yes, Sir. My hon. Friend the Under-Secretary will be seeing tomorrow a deputation from the borough as requested in that letter.
§ Mr. Bidwell
May I express my thanks to the right hon. Gentleman for meeting the deputation? I shall be unable to be present but I hope that my Question today and others by my hon. Friends have been instrumental in arranging this meeting. There is considerable feeling on this issue and it extends beyond the Labour entity in the London Borough of Ealing.
