HC Deb 24 November 1981 vol 13 c359W
23. Mr. Stan Thorne

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services whether he is satisfied with the response of health authorities to his circular DA 81(9) on home defence planning posts.

Mr. Geoffrey Finsberg

The take-up by regional health authorities has been encouraging. So far 12 authorities have either filled the post or are in the process of making an appointment.
