§ Mr. Redwood
There were various claims between Dr. Catford and the Health Promotion Authority for Wales.900W
Following examination of these claims it was agreed that Dr. Catford owed the authority £2,100; this has now been paid. These were matters for the authority to resolve, and the chairman has not needed to consult me. I know of no proposals to write off any moneys.
