§ Ms. Glenda Jackson
To ask the Secretary of State for Health if she will publish her plans for reducing in-patient waiting lists in London before implementation of the Tomlinson report.
§ Dr. Mawhinney
The report notes that significant progress has been made in reducing waiting times in London. In the year to 31 March 1992, the total number of patients waiting in inner London fell by nearly 10 per cent.
We shall ensure that the proposals arising from the report continue this trend.
