HC Deb 13 May 1981 vol 4 c276W
Dr. Roger Thomas

asked the Secretary of State for Wales which areas in the Principality suffer from a shortage of health visitors and district nurses, as referred to in paragraph 4.12 of "Care in Action".

Mr. Nicholas Edwards

"Care in Action" refers only to England. It is for health authorities in Wales to assess their own staffing requirements for health visitors and district nurses but they are aware of the high priority I attach to the domiciliary services.
