HC Deb 22 July 1980 vol 989 cc612-3W
29. Mr. Parry

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services if he is satisfied with the present system of bulk buying by the Liverpool area health authority (teaching); and if there are any plans to change it.

Dr. Vaughan

Arrangements for buying supplies are essentially for health authorities to decide, and vary according to the commodity involved. I am not aware of difficulties in Liverpool, but if the hon. Member will let the area health authority (teaching) know of any specific problems which he has in mind, I am sure it will have them looked into.
