§ Mr. Wigley
asked the Secretary of State for Social Services what further representations he has received since his answer on 4 February, Official Report, c. 143, on the circular HC(80)11 on allowing hospitals to attract private finance; and if he is now in a position to make a reply to these representations.
§ Dr. Vaughan
I have received representations from a substantial further number of voluntary bodies. I am still considering the best course of action in consultation with the National Council for Voluntary Organisations.
