§ Mr. William Powell
asked the Secretary of State for Social Services when he will be making new appointments to regional health authorities; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Whitney
The term of office of half the current members of regional health authorities ends on 30 September 1986, and in accordance with the National Health Service Act 1977 we are seeking nominations for new members. If hon. Members wish to recommend any individuals for membership I invite them to write to me by 19 December 1985. Re-appointments and changes will be announced in due course.
