HC Deb 05 March 1962 vol 655 c4W
47. Mr. Hale

asked the Minister of Health whether, in view of the grave dissatisfaction in the County Borough of Oldham at the recent nominations to the hospital management committee made by the Manchester Regional Hospitals Board, he will receive a deputation representative of the county borough before making his current appointments to the regional board.

Mr. Powell

No; appointments to hospital management committees are the responsibility of regional hospital boards and I cannot intervene.
