§ 12. Mr. Jacques Arnold
To ask the Secretary of State for Wales how many GP fundholders there are in Wales; and what plans there are to extend this scheme. 
§ Mr. Gwilym Jones
There are 210 and a further 25 are expected to become fundholders from 1 April next. Fundholding now covers 52 per cent. of the population of Wales and I expect its popularity to continue to increase.
