§ Mr. John Morrison
asked the Minister of Health whether he will suggest to local authorities that they should adopt a uniform system of cost accounting for those parts of the Health Act which they are responsible for administering.
§ Mr. Iain Macleod
This is primarily a matter for the local health authorities themselves. Some statistics comparing costs have already been published by the Institute of Municipal Treasurers and Accountants and the Society of County Treasurers.
