§ Mr. Janner
asked the Secretary of State for Social Services what is the minimum, maximum and average time that he estimates that a person living in Leicester and requiring a hip replacement operation under the National Health Service would have to wait, from the date when his or her general practitioner originally recommended such surgical intervention.
§ Mr. Newton
I am sorry I cannot give the hon. and learned Member the information he seeks. It is not held centrally. The hon. and learned Member may wish to write to the chairman of the Leicestershire district health authority who may be able to provide the information requested.
