§ Mr. Malcolm MacMillan
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland how many consultant plastic surgeons there are in Scotland, whether he is satisfied that the number is adequate; and what steps he is taking to increase the number.
§ Mr. Maclay
The present total is six. I recently approved the appointment of one additional consultant in the Eastern Region. It is for the regional hospital boards to submit proposals to me if at any time they consider that further appointments are required.
