HC Deb 19 July 1965 vol 716 cc147-8W
66. Mr. Will Griffiths

asked the Minister of Health whether he will give an assurance that no hospital at present administered by regional hospital boards will be transferred to the administration of governors of teaching hospitals groups before the House of Commons has been able to debate the matter.

Mr. K. Robinson

I have already informed the House, in reply to a Question on 17th May from my hon. Friend the Member for Willesden, West (Mr. Pavitt), of my decision in relation to London, that further designations of non-teaching hospitals as parts of teaching hospital groups are right in principle when they will improve hospital services in the area and conform with the responsibility of boards of governors for clinical teaching.
