HC Deb 19 December 1994 vol 251 c994W
Mrs. Beckett

To ask the Secretary of State for Health what evidence she has of the connection between the length of a doctor's working week and(a) the health of that doctor and (b) the quality of care she or he is able to provide.

Mr. Malone

There is no positive evidence to link the length of the working week as such with the health of doctors and the quality of care they provide.
