HC Deb 08 February 1980 vol 978 c396W
Mr. Alton

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services if he will make a statement about the dispute at the Liverpool Royal hospital; and what action he will take against the area health authority arising from its failure to observe the national arbitration agreement.

Mr. Patrick Jenkin

I understand that both parties to the dispute are prepared to go to arbitration and that discussions on the terms of reference are in train.
