HC Deb 27 April 1988 vol 132 c188W
28. Mrs. Fyfe

To ask the Secretary of State for Scotland when he expects to publish his findings on the SHARPEN report; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Michael Forsyth

The report on the Scottish Health Authorities Review of Priorities for the Eighties and Nineties — the SHARPEN report — is a working document that is under consideration by the Scottish Health Service Planning Council. My right hon. and learned Friend expects to receive the planning council's advice about the report and its recommendations shortly.
