HC Deb 22 April 1975 vol 890 c281W
Mr. Stephen Ross

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services what steps she is taking to cut out waste in Great Britain's National Health hospitals, with particular reference to furniture and equipment.

Dr. Owen

There is an urgent need for cost saving in the NHS. If the hon. Gentleman has any specific evidence of waste in relation to furniture and equipment I would be grateful if he will let me and the relevant area health authority know.
