Mrs. Renée Short
asked the Secretary of State for Social Services when he expects the investigation being presently conducted by the Health and Safety executive into the food poisoning at the Stanley Royd hospital in Wakefield to be concluded; and if he will publish its findings in the Official Report.
Mr. John Patten
We are not aware of any investigation of this outbreak by the Health and Safety Executive. Mr. John Hugill is chairman of the committee of inquiry that my right hon. Friend set up into the outbreak and the public hearings of oral evidence were completed on 17 May. We have undertaken to publish the findings of the Committee. We are awaiting its report.
