HC Deb 07 December 1987 vol 124 c40W
Mr. Worthington

To ask the Secretary of State for Scotland why the waiting time for an operation for children with glue ear in the Greater Glasgow health board area has risen from 45 days in 1985 to eight or ten months now.

Mr. Michael Forsyth

The latest information on waiting times held centrally relates to 1985. I invite the hon. Member to ask the chairman of Greater Glasgow health board whether he can provide more recent information and the underlying reasons for the current position.
