§ 13. Mr. Robathan
To ask the Secretary of State for Wales what recent discussions he has had with the First Secretary on NHS waiting lists in Wales. 
§ Mr. Hanson
My right hon. Friend the Secretary of State and I meet regularly with the National Assembly First Secretary and the Assembly Health Secretary to discuss health issues. The subject of waiting lists is often a part of our discussions. It was also discussed at the first meeting of the Joint Ministerial Committee for Health held recently in Cardiff. The National Assembly has invested over £37 million to reduce waiting lists in Wales.
