Member for Uxbridge, dated 14th October 1976; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Moyle
I regret that information is not available in the form requested, and I have nothing to add to my right hon. Friend's reply on 4th August and my hon. Friend's reply to the hon. Member for Wallasey (Mrs. Chalker) on 25th October. However, preliminary figures indicate that the number of consultants in post in England and Wales has continued to increase during the past year. —[Vol. 916, c.839–41; Vol. 918, c. 68–70.]
