§ Mr. Pavitt
asked the Secretary of State for Social Services when he expects to be able to announce the appointment of a successor to Sir Harold Evans as Chairman of the Health Education Council.
§ Mr. Ennals
I have today appointed Sir George Godber as Chairman of the 689W Health Education Council with effect from 1st January 1977. On that date Sir George will take over the chairmanship of the council from Sir Harold Evans who agreed to remain in office for a further year after his original term of three years expired on 31st December last. Sir George will become a member of the council in the meantime.
I would like to take the opportunity to express the Government's thanks to Sir Harold Evans for the substantial contribution he has made to health education in his period of four years as chairman of the council.
