HC Deb 24 July 1979 vol 971 cc118-9W
33. Mr. Temple-Morris

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services if he will make a statement on the future of his predecessor's circular HC(79) 2 to regional and area health authorities concerning the Salmon report on the procuring of National Health Service supplies.

Mr. Patrick Jenkin

This circular was issued, after consultation with health authorities, following a recommendation in the report of the supply board working group. I am at present examining the conclusions and recommendations of that report in the light of the report of the Royal Commission on the National Health Service published last week.
