HC Deb 10 December 1986 vol 107 c209W
Mr. John Browne

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services if he will publish for each health authority in England the number of cases and the average length of stay for each of private patients and National Health Service patients for each specialty covered by National Health Service statistical returns.

Mr. Newton

I shall let my hon. Friend have such information as can be obtained without incurring disproportionate cost as soon as possible.
