(2) what arrangements he has made for ensuring that (a) ambulance trusts in England are made aware of district auditors' reports in Wales directly affecting senior appointments in England and (b) ambulance trusts in Wales are made aware of such reports in England; and if he will make a statement.

Staff appointments are a matter for national health service trusts. It is the responsibility for the trust to make the necessary inquiries about the employment history of candidates.
