To ask the Secretary of State for Wales whether he will make it his policy to require health authorities in Wales to provide full information and to consult local communities on (a) planning of services and (b) financial planning on an annual basis.

No. The Community Health Council Regulations 1985—SI 1985 No. 304—require health authorities to consult community health councils on any substantial development of, or variation in, the services provided in the district. In addition, the regulations require health authorities to provide such information about the planning and operation of health services in the district as a CHC may reasonably need in order to carry out its duties.
