Mr. McMaster

To ask the Secretary of State for Scotland, pursuant to his answer of 9 June 1992,Official Report, column 133, when he plans to announce the appointments made to vacancies which will arise on Argyll and Clyde health board on 31 March; what consultations he is undertaking or has undertaken prior to his decisions; what plans he has to consult hon. Members representing constituencies within the health board area; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Stewart

My right hon. Friend expects to announce shortly appointments to fill vacancies arising in Argyll and Clyde health board. The consultation required by the National Health Service (Scotland) Act 1978 has been carried out and the views of the health board chairman have been taken. There are no plans to consult hon. Members representing constituencies within the health board area; it is open to hon. Members, as some indeed have done, to suggest names for possible appointment to health boards.
