§ Mr. Blunkett
To ask the Secretary of State for Health what discussions she or her Department has had with Mr. Tom Pindar, chairman of the Scarborough and North East Yorkshire Health Care NHS Trust, following his remarks in the course of a mental health review meeting in January; and what plans she has to seek his resignation.
§ Mr. Sackville
Discussions have taken place between Mr. Pindar and the chairman of Northern and Yorkshire regional health authority. I understand that Mr Pindar has apologised unreservedly for his remarks and this has been accepted by all parties. I am satisfied that he should 309W continue as chairman of the Scarborough and East Yorkshire Health Care National Health Service Trust.
