HC Deb 17 July 1952 vol 503 cc172-3W
Major Lloyd

asked the Minister of Health how many of the regional hospital boards, because their regions are too large for effective administration, are working through a number of area committees.

Mr. Iain Macleod

One board has appointed area committees for the whole region and three for a part of their region. The functions of these committees vary widely, and not all have executive powers.
