HC Deb 16 November 1964 vol 702 cc1-2W
28. Mr. Hale

asked the Minister of Health whether he will reconsider the present methods of appointments to, and the composition of, regional hospital boards with a view to making them more fully representative of the area and of opinions in the area.

Mr. Robinson

While I am always ready to consider any specific suggestions for change, the present methods are already designed to secure a suitable range of knowledge and interests including local interests, among members of Boards; my object will be to appoint members on this basis.
