HC Deb 07 February 1997 vol 289 cc758-9W
Mr. Morgan

To ask the Secretary of State for Wales what consultations he has had with the chairmen of the Welsh health authorities concerning the supply of statistics on the number of non-emergency operations cancelled since Christmas 1996 to assist hospitals in coping with the surge in medical emergency admissions; if he will give such statistics as have been collected; and if he will make a statement. [14965]

Mr. Hague

None. I shall, however, be meeting health authority chairmen on 10 March 1997 when a range of issues, including emergency medical admissions, will be discussed.
