HC Deb 10 March 1986 vol 93 c375W
Mr. Kirkwood

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services when his Department first announced plans for the Green Paper on primary health care; and why it has not been published to date.

Mr. Hayhoe

The Government announced their intention to publish a Green Paper in April 1984. Since then there has been a number of important developments which the Government wished to take into account including the publication of the Royal College of General Practitioners' policy statement "Quality in General Practice".
