§ Mr. Dobson
asked the Secretary of State for Social Services how many appointments for orthopaedic operations have been cancelled in the South East Staffordshire health district due to the shortage of junior hospital doctors; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Whitney
I am sorry I cannot give the hon. Member the information he seeks. It is not collected centrally. The hon. Member may wish to write to the chairman of South-East Staffordshire health authority.
