§ Mr. Stainton
asked the Secretary of State for Social Services whether he is aware of the difficulties of recruiting and holding ancillary, para-medical and junior clerical grade staff in hospitals in Suffolk ; and if he will give the representations of the West Suffolk Hospital Management Committee and the hon. Member for Sudbury and Woodbridge immediate attention.

I have received my hon. Friend's letter referring to the representations of the West Suffolk Hospital Management Committee which are now under consideration by the East Anglian Regional Hospital Board. I shall examine with them whether any special steps can be taken to improve the situation.246W
