§ Mr. Alec Jones
asked the Secretary of State for Wales whether he proposes to restrict the recruitment of consultants, dental and senior medical staff in the National Health Service in Wales either immediately or with effect from April 1983.
§ Mr. Wyn Roberts
The recruitment of senior medical and dental staff is a matter for the health authorities, subject to the guidelines drawn up by the central manpower committee and the resources available. I have no plans to alter these long-standing arrangements.
