HC Deb 06 August 1976 vol 916 cc1153-4W
Mr. Newens

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services what are the projects already undertaken or planned by the Essex Area Health Authority which are likely to be delayed, postponed or cancelled as the result of the proposed cuts in public expenditure.
