§ Dr. Owen
I am looking in collaboration with my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for Employment at the whole question of occupational health in relation to policy statements made by the Government when we were in opposition.
We now face a difficult few years when there will be considerable pressure on resources, both money and skilled staff, and there are other areas of high priority to which we are committed to making improvements. A statement will be made as soon as we are able to complete our examination of the overall policy issues.
