§ 19. Mr. Ashton
To ask the Secretary of State for Health how many letters he has had from members of the public or local organisations in Bassetlaw supporting the application from the Bassetlaw health authority to turn the Bassetlaw hospital, Worksop into a self governing trust.
§ Mr. Kenneth Clarke
None, but only one against. If an application is made for Bassetlaw health authority to become self governing I will look to the Trent regional health authority to seek the views of all those with an interest.
