HC Deb 10 May 1951 vol 487 c254W
Sir W. Smithers

asked the Minister of Health if he will set up an independent committee, presided over by a prominent King's Counsel, to make an investigation regarding the dismissal of Mr. John Griffith from his appointment on a hospital management committee, particulars of which have been sent to him.

Mr. Marquand

Mr. Griffith was secretary of the committee. The appointment and dismissal of hospital staff are matters for the hospital authority concerned, and I am not prepared to intervene.
