§ Mr. Soames
It is not possible at this time to say what the personnel implications of the market test of health services in British Forces Germany will be. The winning tender by the Health Alliance is subject to further detailed contractual discussions as well as consultation with the staff and their representatives in UK and Germany. Any proposals will, however, be in full compliance with the terms and conditions of service, and appropriate British or German legislation.
