HC Deb 12 March 1980 vol 980 c596W
Dr. Roger Thomas

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services what is his reaction to proposals made to him by the Joint Consultants Committee on extending the Parliamentary Commissioner for Administration's jurisdiction to include matters of clinical judgment, in view of demands for independent arbitration from the medical profession.

Mr. Patrick Jenkin

I am not yet in a position to give a considered reaction to the proposals put forward by the Joint Consultants Committee. These are being studied urgently by my Department.
