To ask the Secretary of State for Health what discussions his Department has had with Mr. G. R. Scaife, regional general manager of Liverpool regional health authority, on the subject of community health councils; and if he will list dates and any correspondence between his Department and Mr. Scaife on this subject.

As part of the process of planning for the NHS review, an official wrote to Mr. Scaife on 22 September 1989 about the future role of community health councils. Mr. Scaife discussed the subject very briefly with the Department on 5 October 1989 before responding constructively to this letter on 9 October. The Department's subsequent reply to Mr. Scaife was dated 22 November. We know of no other discussion between Mr. Scaife and the Department of Health on the subject of CHCs.
