HC Deb 20 March 1987 vol 112 c667W
Sir Geoffrey Finsberg

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services how many nurses were employed by the Hampstead health authority, or its predecessor in (a) 1979, (b) 1983 and (c) the latest date for which information is available.

Mr. Newton

Information for the years 1983 and 1985 (the latest available to this level of detail), is as follows. I regret that information for the former North Camden district health authority is not available on a comparable basis for 1979, due to the effects of boundary changes following the National Health Service reorganisation in 1982.
