§ Mrs. Renee Short
asked the Secretary of State for Social Services what action he intends to take on the report from Professor Townsend on inequalities in health in the northern region.
§ Mr. Newton
The report "Inequalities in Health in the Northern Region" was commissioned by, and produced with the help of, the Northern regional health authority. I am sure that the authority is considering the report's implications, and will find it a useful aid in its own planning. The hon. Member may wish to contact the chairman of the Northern regional health authority for further information.
