HC Deb 17 April 1991 vol 189 c193W
19. Mr. Eadie

To ask the Secretary of State for Scotland if he will investigate the delay in carrying out elective coronary surgery in the Lothian health board area.

Mr. Michael Forsyth

I have made substantial extra resources available to Lothian for cardiac surgery. Last year, the number of operations increased and waiting lists fell by 5.4 per cent. I will however give further consideration to the programme in the light of the hon. Members' representations.
