HC Deb 22 June 1971 vol 819 cc231-2W
Mr. Michael Cocks

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services if he will ask the South-West Regional Hospital Board, the Board of Governors of the United Bristol Hospitals and Bristol University to defer any further work on the formation of a University Hospital Management Committee for Bristol until the Consultative Document has been considered in and out of Parliament and he has received comments on it from organisations.

Sir K. Joseph

This proposal and the timing of discussions on it are matters for local initiative and it is not for me to intervene. I understand that the local discussions are still at an exploratory stage.
