§ Mr. Morgan
To ask the Secretary of State for Wales what was the cost of the exercise initiated by the letter of 31 May 1995 from his Department to chief executives of health authorities and NHS trusts concerning the patients charter; how many news stories it generated; and to what extent doctors and nurses participated in his Department's press conference. 
§ Mr. Hague
The cost to each health authority and NHS trust of publicising its achievements is an issue for each chief executive.
Information on the level of NHS generated news stories is not held centrally.
Members of the NHS were not invited to participate in the Welsh Office launch of the 1995 NHS performance tables.
