§ Mr. Stainton
asked the Minister of Health what study he has made of the evidence, sent to him by the hon. Member for Sudbury and Woodbridge, concerning deficiencies in the hospital facilities available in the area of the Ipswich and East Anglia Hospital Board; and if he will receive a deputation, at an early date, supported by senior consultant and nursing staff, to express their views on the subject.
§ Mr. Barber
I have considered all the material sent to me at the instance of my hon. Fiend. The regional board, which is responsible for deciding priorities among competing claims on their resources and for planning the hospital services of the area, is examining various possibilities and would be glad to receive any further suggestions.
