§ Mr. Anderson
asked the Secretary of State for Wales on what basis representatives of community health councils were excluded from the all-Wales health forum.
§ Mr. Wyn Roberts
There is no permanent membership of the forum. Invitations to attend meetings are issued according to the subjects under discussion. To encourage a genuine exchange of views numbers must be kept to a reasonable level, but to ensure the widest airing of issues summaries of discussions are circulated extensively. The Association of Community Health Councils in Wales and each individual community health council were sent a copy of the summary of the first meeting.
