HC Deb 12 December 1983 vol 50 c354W
Mr. Marlow

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services how many secretarial staff are employed for hospital doctors in the Health Service; and what is their annual cost.

Mr. Kenneth Clarke

Secretarial support staff are employed by district and regional health authorities. It is not possible to extract figures for doctors' secretarial staff from the overall administrative and clerical staff of the authorities.
