HC Deb 12 February 1980 vol 978 c588W
Dr. Roger Thomas

asked the Secretary of State for Wales if he is satisfied that the policies outlined in "Patients First" for halving the numbers of elected representatives on the area health authorities will maintain the democratic accountability of the authorities rather than increase control from the Welsh Office.

Mr. Wyn Roberts

I am satisfied that there should be consultations on whether the one-third local authority representation on health authorities is necessary.
