HC Deb 28 July 1982 vol 28 c521W
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.
