HC Deb 26 June 1995 vol 262 c483W
Mrs. Beckett

To ask the Secretary of State for Health what is the Department's policy with respect to the employment by trust hospitals of press and public relations officers; and if she will make a statement. [30785]

Mr. Malone

It is for individual national health service trusts to determine their own press and public relations needs and ensure they employ the appropriate number of staff to meet these needs.
