§ 52. Mr. Braine
asked the Minister of Health if he will state the estimated cost of the special centres it is proposed to set up for the treatment of drug addicts; and whether this will be financed out of additional Exchequer money or by cuts in other parts of the National Health Service.
§ Mr. K. Robinson
Such an estimate canot yet be made. All hospitals are given additional money each year for developments, and I do not expect the cost of these additional treatment facilities to require cuts in other parts of the National Health Service.
