HC Deb 29 May 1963 vol 678 cc136-7W
73. Mr. W. Hamilton

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what has been the total paid in health charges within the National Health Service in each of the last 10 years; and whether he will give a break-down of the figures.

Mr. Noble:

The following is the Answer:

(Scotland) Act, 1960, was taken into account in fixing the General Grant for 1961–62, 1962–63 and 1963–64.

Mr. Noble

The estimates of relevant local expenditure, as agreed for grant purposes in discussion with the local authority associations, took this need fully into account.
