§ Mr. William Wells
asked the Secretary of State for Social Services what progress is being made in reducing the waiting time for gynaecological operations in Walsall, so that this is assimilated to the waiting time throughout the rest of the area for which the Birmingham Regional Hospital Board is responsible.
§ Mr. Alison
I understand the Birmingham Regional Hospital Board is considering the gynaecological needs in Walsall. I have asked to be informed of the outcome of its review.
