HC Deb 11 June 1976 vol 912 cc799-800W
Mr. Pavitt

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services if he will ban the use of National Health Service premises for the display of political posters issued by the Campaign for Independence in Medicine.

Dr. Owen

Under an agreement of the General Whitley Council staff organisations may display on notice boards supplied for their use material which they consider to be of general interest to their members; display of material elsewhere in the hospital is subject to the consent of local management. In view of the terms of the agreement, and on the evidence at present available to me about this particular example, I think it is best to leave this matter to the judgment of individual health authorities.
