§ Mr. Morgan
To ask the Secretary of State for Wales what consultations he has had with the chairman of the South Glamorgan and Mid Glamorgan health authorities in relation to the non-completion by the former of the latter's contract for hip and knee joint replacements; what is the value of the refund required by the latter from the former for non-completion of the contract; in what form the refund will be made; and what guidelines he has issued to cover refund transactions between Welsh health authorities.
§ Mr. Redwood
This matter has been resolved by the Mid and South Glamorgan health authorities. I am advised that at 1 April 1994 there will be no outstanding financial issues. Guidance on the resolution of contract disputes was issued on 1991.
