HL Deb 14 December 1992 vol 541 cc23-4WA
Lord Hylton

asked Her Majesty's Government:

Whether they intend to respond in detail to the report Health in the City and Hackney 1992 by the Department of Public Health, City and Hackney Health Authority; and if not, why not.

The Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State, Department of Health (Baroness Cumberlege)

No. The purpose of annual health reports by directors of public health is to analyse local health needs in order to improve health authorities' commissioning of services for their local population, and their collaboration with other local agencies.
