HC Deb 05 March 1990 vol 168 c434W
Mr. Alton

To ask the Secretary of State for Health whether he will require the document "Application for National Health Service Trust Status" to be given by Mersey regional health authority to its employees for the purposes of consultation.

Mrs. Virginia Bottomley

When, subject to the passage of the necessary legislation, applications for National Health Service trust status are submitted, we will look to regional health authorities to make whatever arrangements they consider necessary to ensure that those with an interest, including staff, are consulted about the proposals.
