§ Mr. Wigley
asked the Secretary of State for Wales if he will undertake a survey to ascertain how many physiotherapists are needed to meet the requirements for physiotherapy in Wales; and how this compares to the numbers of established posts for physiotherapists in Wales and the numbers of trained physiotherapists available to fill these posts.
§ Mr. John Stradling Thomas
No. It is for each individual district health authority to assess its needs for physiotherapy staff in accordance with locally determined priorities.
