HC Deb 27 May 1952 vol 501 c151W
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.
