§ Mr. Wardell
asked the Secretary of State for Wales what plans he has for remedying the shortage of hospital beds in Wales for the treatment of cardiac disease.
§ Mr. Wyn Roberts
Following the publication on 27 July 1982 of the Welsh Medical Committee's working party report and the Welsh Office's study report on cardiothoracic services in Wales, I have asked the Department to undertake a detailed appraisal of the cost and benefits of the options for developing these services which the study team identified. Copies of the reports are available in the Library.
