asked the Minister of Health what estimates he has received from regional hospital boards for the financial year 1949–50; and the total of these estimates.

Mr. Bevan

All regional hospital boards have submitted estimates for the financial year 1949–50. The total gross expenditure shown in the estimates as received is £157,680,000, of which £10,236,000 represents capital expenditure. Income is given as £9,021,000.

Colonel Stoddart-Scott

Would the Minister say how much that is in excess of the estimate?

Mr. Bevan

If the hon. and gallant Member will put the Question down, I will give him the answer.
