§ Mr. Leslie Huckfield
asked the Secretary of State for Social Services, (1) what is the minimum population catchment area necessary to secure one representative on the Birmingham Regional Hospital Board;
(2) whether he will re-examine the representation of the Nuneaton and Bed-worth areas on the Birmingham Regional Hospital Board;
(3) how many representatives from the Nuneaton and Bedworth areas there are on the Birmingham Regional Hospital Board.
§ Mr. Ennals
Members are not appointed as representatives of particular areas. While my right hon. Friend tries to secure that boards broadly reflect the interests of the region as a whole, within a limited membership it is not possible for boards to include members from every part of the region at any one time.
