§ Mr. Flannery
To ask the Secretary of State for Health if he will give the names of the hospitals in south Yorkshire which have shown an interest in opting out.
§ Mrs. Virginia Bottomley
I refer the hon. Member to the reply I gave to the hon. Member for Leicester, East (Mr. Vaz) on 29 November at columns297–300. There is, of course, no question of any hospital "opting-out" of the NHS.
