HC Deb 15 February 1989 vol 147 c253W
Mr. Steinberg

To ask the Secretary of State for Health how many of the hospitals in the Northern regional health authority he expects to become self-governing under the proposals in the White Paper, "Working for Patients".

Mr. Kenneth Clarke

It is too early even to estimate numbers. Over time, I expect that as many hospitals as are willing and able to do so will become self-governing.
