§ 92. Mr. Sydney Irving
asked the Minister of Health if he will state the maintenance allowance to each of the group management committees for hospitals in the Dartford constituency for the current year, the amounts requested when estimates were prepared, and the percentage increases in monetary and real terms over the allocation for the previous financial year.
§ Mr. Braine
Following are the figures:
Hospital Management Committee Initial allocation, 1962–63 Percentage increase in money terms over initial allocation for 1961–62 £ Per cent. Dartford 1,383,420 6.3 Darenth and Stone 1,035,730 7.1
1. Increases at constant pay and prices are not separately calculated for each hospital authority.
2. Allocations to Hospital Management Committees are the responsibility of Regional Hospital Boards. My right hon. Friend does not propose to ask Boards to disclose the draft estimates of individual hospital authorities.
