28. Mr. L'ESTRANGE MALONE
asked the Minister of Health why the administrative county of Northamptonshire was omitted from the tables of estimated grants and deficits contained in Command Papers 3134 and 3227; whether his Department has worked out the figures for Northamptonshire; and, if so, will he publish them?
Northamptonshire was one of the counties for which the calculations had not been completed when the last Command Paper was issued. The estimates for this county will be included in the next Command Paper which it is hoped will be issued shortly.
Are we to understand that the Government did not work out the figures for every county, before producing a Measure of this magnitude?
