HC Deb 01 February 1971 vol 810 cc290-1W
Mr. Golding

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services what are the estimated costs of private patients using National Health Service facilities.

Mr. Alison

Private in-patients and out-patients pay charges to the hospital designed to cover the cost of the accommodation and services made available. The income from such charges in 1969–70 amounted to £8,454,000 for England.
