HC Deb 06 February 1973 vol 850 cc60-1W
39. Mr. Hugh Jenkins

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services if he will conduct an inquiry into deputising services used by the National Health Service doctors; and what arrangements are made for the exercise of jurisdiction by executive councils over them.

Mr. Alison

As to the second part of the Question I would refer the hon. Member to my reply to the hon. Member for Widnes (Mr. Oakes) on 20th November last. In general these arrangements seem satisfactory, and I see no reason for an inquiry.—[Vol. 846, c.307.]
