HC Deb 27 July 1993 vol 229 c834W
Ms Lynne

To ask the Secretary of State for Health if she will list the regional health authorities which ask for a declaration of local political party affiliation in applications for non-executive and executive directors of NHS trusts.

Mr. Sackville

Information of this type is not available centrally. People are appointed to health authorities and trusts for their personal qualities and skills. Political affiliation is not a factor in these appointments.
