HC Deb 27 January 1964 vol 688 cc19-20W
Mr. Taverne

asked the Minister of Health whether any of the three boards of governors, whose reports were not available on 9th December, 1963, and which were delaying the review of medical staffing, have now reported; which boards have not yet reported; and what are the reasons for delay.

Mr. Barber

No. The Boards of Governors of the Hospitals for Diseases of the Chest, of St. Peter's, St. Paul's and St. Philip's Hospitals, and of the National Heart Hospital. The Boards have difficulties of reorganisation. The review of medical staffing is not being delayed on this account.
