HC Deb 23 October 1979 vol 972 c162W
Mr. Pavitt

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services what would be the addition to National Health Service resources if he took over the general practitioner deputising service of Air Call, which now proposes to become a public company.

Sir George Young

I understand that the deputising service is only one of the activities in which Air Call is engaged. I see no case, on resource or other grounds, for incorporating any part of the company into the National Health Service.
