HC Deb 24 July 1973 vol 860 c562W
Mr. Tinn

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services when he expects to be able to announce the names of the chairman and members of the area health boards of the National Health Service.

Mr. Alison

My right hon. Friend expects to announce the names of the members of regional health authorities and of the chairman of area health authorities shortly. The appointment of members of area health authorities is a matter for the new regional authorities which will be expected to hold their first meetings about the end of August.
