§ Mr. Skinner
asked the Secretary of State for Social Services how many sterilisations of female patients were 58W sending my hon. Friend a copy. I announced decisions on the pattern of districts for Wessex in my reply to my hon. Friend the Member for Poole (Mr. Ward.) on 6 March—[Vol. 1000, c. 211]—and we are at present considering the regional health authorities' proposals for other regions, with a view to announcing decisions by the end of May.
