HC Deb 05 May 1971 vol 816 c367W
Mr. James Hamilton

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what are the relative proportions of money spent on psychiatric and non-psychiatric patients in the hospital services.

Mr. Gordon Campbell

In 1969–70 about 23 per cent. of current expenditure on the hospital services was devoted to mental and mental deficiency hospitals. It is not possible to identify separately expenditure on psychiatric patients in other hospitals.
