Patients And Customers In The N.h.s.;amdt. Line 1:

EDM number 371A1 in 1991-92, proposed by Gwilym Jones on 11/12/1991.

leave out from 'House' to end and add 'notes Labour MPs' quibbles about the use of the word "customer" which underlines the Labour Party's continuing role as the mouthpiece of NUPE and COHSE rather than championing the users of NHS services; congratulates the Parliamentary Under Secretary at the Welsh Office on his first year as Minister responsible for health in Wales; notes that he has visited over 45 hospitals and NHS units, and that Welsh NHS expenditure will rise by a record ú186m to ú1877m, bringing the real term increase to 60% since 1979 compared with 9% under the last Labour Government; welcomes the record increases in patients treated, the approval of the first NHS Trust in Wales and the forthcoming announcement of a significant number of expressions of interest by hospitals and units all over Wales in seeking NHS Trust status; and congratulates NHS staff on ignoring threats by the Labour Party to reimpose bureaucratic control on the NHS, whilst appreciating that the exposure of the Labour Party's distortions and misrepresentations to the people of Wales and causing grave alarm and despondency to that party as it flounders amongst any fast disappearing last vestiges of respectability amidst its bankrupt creed of socialism.'.

This is a ammendment to 371.

This motion has been signed by a total of 2 MPs.
