asked the Secretary of State for Social Services if he will list the area health authorities under the responsibility of the Yorkshire regional health authority and name the chairmen, the vice-chairmen and the secretaries of each of the authorities and if he will indicate the addresses to which official correspondence should be sent.

My right hon. Friend the Secretary of State does not appoint the vice-chairmen of district health authorities. They are elected annually by the members of the authority from within their own number. There is also no statutory post of secretary to a health authority, although most authorities identify a person to act in this capacity. This information is therefore not held centrally but the right hon. Member may wish to obtain it from the relevant district health authority chairman. The other information requested is as follows:

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services if he will list the members of the Wakefield area health authority, the dates of their appointments and any qualifications they may hold in relation to the National Health Service.

We do not hold this information centrally. The responsibility for appointing members of Wakefield health authority lies with Yorkshire regional health authority and the appropriate local authorities. The right hon. Member may therefore wish to obtain the information from Mr. Bryan Askew, the chairman of the regional health authority.
