§ Sir Barney Hayhoe
To ask the Secretary of State for Social Services what controls apply to National Health Service consultants being financially involved in commercial agencies supplying locums to the National Health Service hospitals in which they practise; and if he has any plans to alter the present position.
§ Mr. Newton
There are no specific controls. It is for health authorities to determine locally whether any individual abuses his position. There are no current plans to change this.
