HC Deb 03 August 1976 vol 916 c704W
Mr. Parry

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services what is the estimated reduction in staff in the National Health Service in the Merseyside Regional Health Authority following the recently announced cuts in public expenditure.

Dr. Owen

It is not possible to forecast the effect of my right hon. Friend the Chancellor of the Exchequer's recently announced cuts in public expenditure on NHS staffing levels in the Mersey health region.
