HC Deb 16 January 1979 vol 960 c713W
Mr. Ashley

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services when a new permanent director of the Health Advisory Service will be appointed following the resignation of Dr. Woodford Williams in 1978.

Mr. Ennals

I hope to be able to announce an appointment very soon. In the meantime, I am very grateful to Dr. Christopher Wharton who has taken on the directorship pending the announcement of a longer-term appointment.
