HC Deb 23 January 1970 vol 794 c222W
Dr. Gray

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services how many of the 25 members of the East Anglian Regional Hospital Board represented Great Yarmouth and Lowestoft; and if any of its members were domiciled in those towns.

Mr. Crossman

None of the present members lives in Great Yarmouth or Lowestoft. I appoint members of regional hospital boards for the personal contribution they can make. Nevertheless I seek to get a suitably wide range of geographical and other relevant background in the membership; this is varied from time to time in the annual process of retirements and appointments.
