HC Deb 10 July 1984 vol 63 c444W
Mr. Coombs

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he will take steps to secure the appointment to the National Economic Development Council of a health representative; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Peter Rees

My right hon. Friend the Chancellor has no present plans to alter the structure of the National Economic Development Council. Expanding the size of the council would risk it becoming unwieldly, to the detriment of effective discussion.
