§ Mr. Durant
asked the Secretary of State for Social Services what the average waiting time was in the Oxford regional health authority for each of the last five years for which figures are available for the following operations: (a) hip replacement, (b) hernia repair, and (c) other non-urgent cases.
§ Mr. John Patten
I shall let my hon. Friend have, as soon as possible, such information on waiting times for the two specified types of operation as can be obtained without disproportionate cost. With regard to the average waiting time of other non-urgent cases, if my hon. Friend would write to me with his detailed requirements I shall supply the available information.
