HC Deb 14 May 1975 vol 892 c121W
Mr. R. C. Mitchell

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services what is the average waiting time for children's adenoid operations in the Southampton area.

Dr. Owen

A meaningful figure for the average waiting time cannot be given, as the length of time a child may have to wait depends upon the degree of urgency for the operation and the length of the appropriate waiting list. Waiting times vary between three and 18 months.
