HC Deb 13 April 1976 vol 909 cc506-7W
Mr. Wigley

asked the Secretary of State for Wales what initial comments the Welsh Office has received from area health authorities and other bodies in Wales concerning the proposals to phase out private beds at National Health Service hospitals in Wales.

Mr. Barry Jones

Medical and dental organisations have opposed the proposals generally and as regards their particular areas; some health service staff organisations have supported the proposals or would prefer more far-reaching ones. Others were divided in their views.
