§ Mr. Barnett
asked the Minister of Health what action he has taken arising out of the recommendations of the North-West Economic Planning Council.
§ Mr. K. Robinson
I would refer my hon. Friend to the reply given by the First Secretary of State for Economic Affairs today. None of the recommendations relates directly to my responsibilities, but some of them, if implemented, will need to be taken into account, where appropriate, in the long term planning of health and welfare services.
