§ Sir John Stradling Thomas
To ask the Secretary of State for Wales if he will list all the hospitals in the area of the Gwent health authority, with the average number of both patients and staff for each of them in each of the last 12 years.
§ Mr. Grist
The information can be provided only at disproportionate cost. My hon. Friend may, however, wish to refer to the following Welsh Office publications, copies of which are held in the Library of the House. "Bed Use Statistics" (which includes annual numbers of in-patients, day cases and out-patients by hospital) and "Health and Personal Social Services Statistics for Wales" (which provides a manpower summary for each district health authority).
