HC Deb 12 January 1977 vol 923 c519W
53. Sir G. de Freitas

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services whether he is aware that the Northamptonshire Area Health Authority has a particular financial problem in that it has within it three new towns and two expanding towns; and when he expects to be able to reply to the letter of 4th January from the chairman of the authority.

Mr. Moyle

The letter from the Chairman of the Northamptonshire Area Health Authority on this subject was not received in my Department until 10th January. My right hon. Friend and I will reply as soon as we have had the opportunity to study in detail the important points raised in the letter.
