asked the Secretary of State for Social Services what advice has been given by his Department to the South Bedfordshire health authority about its intention to cease using the services of chiropodists in private practice for National Health Service work.

We would welcome any changes that would improve the service to the people of south Bedfordshire and provide it in a more cost effective way.
