§ Mr. Cartwright
asked the Secretary of State for Social Services how many 241W patients in Inner London have been removed from general practitioners' lists at the request of the doctor during each of the last 10 years for which figures are available.
§ Dr. Owen
The information is as follows and relates to the year ending 31st March in each case:
On 1st April 1974 the area of the former Inner London Executive Council was split between seven family practitioner committees, some boroughs being grouped with boroughs outside the Inner London area. An Inner London figure for any period after that date could not therefore be obtained without undue labour.
