Mr. Freud

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services if he will now publish a press release further to his release 82/189, giving his reasons why the terms of office of each of his six regional health authority chairmen who have been replaced, were not renewed.

Member for Crewe (Mrs. Dunwoody) on 30 June—[Vol. 26, c. 333.] In accordance with previous practice by Governments of all parties, I am not prepared to make public considerations relating to the appointment or reappointment of particular individuals.
