Friend agree that competitive tendering in the Health Service in Scotland will help further to improve it, as indeed the Government have already done by increasing the amount of money spent in the Health Service by 30 per cent. since 1979 and increasing the number of consultants by 10 per cent. and the number of qualified nurses by 30 per cent.?
