HC Deb 25 November 1969 vol 792 c79W
Dr. Winstanley

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services if he will publish a table in the OFFICIAL REPORT showing the average length of time spent on the waiting list by patients awaiting operations in each of the regional hospital board areas of England and Wales.

Dr. John Dunwoody

This information is not available and waiting times vary so much that average figures would have little meaning.
