§ Mr. Galbraith
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if he will publish a table showing the number of whole-time and the number of part-time consultants in each surgical specialty in each hospital in Scotland.
§ Mr. Michael Forsyth
The precise current distribution of consultant staff in each surgical specialty in each hospital in Scotland is not known centrally. Information about consultant manpower by speciality and health board is published in "Scottish Health Statistics" a copy of which is held in the Library.
