HC Deb 14 December 1987 vol 124 c387W
Mr. Hood

To ask the Secretary of State for Scotland what are the debts owed by private medical companies to(a) the National Health Service Scotland and (b) the National Health Service Clydesdale area.

Mr. Michael Forsyth

Information about the debts owed to individual health boards is not held centrally. If the hon. Member wishes to write seeking information from the chairman of the Lanarkshire health board about the matter, I suggest it would be helpful if he could clarify what he means by the term "private medical companies".
