HC Deb 11 January 1977 vol 923 cc447-8W
34. Mr. Wells

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services whether the reorganised NHS provides an improved administrative framework within which it is now possible to look at priorities more comprehensively.

This Government's views on the deficiencies of the administrative framework of the NHS, which they inherited from their predecessors, are well known.
