HC Deb 02 March 1990 vol 168 c367W
Mr. Alton

To ask the Secretary of State for Health how many people are registered as requiring speech therapy in Liverpool; how many currently receive such help; how many speech therapists are employed by the health authority; how many vacancies remain unfilled; and if he will make a statement.

Mrs. Virginia Bottomley

Liverpool health authority has had difficulty recruiting qualified speech therapists and is currently examining, with the help of an expert adviser, how the situation can be improved. A report is due at the end of March. For detailed information, the hon. Member may wish to contact the chairman of Liverpool health authority.
