HC Deb 08 February 1974 vol 868 c492W
Mr. Pavitt

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services, if the year 1969–70 is taken to equal 100, what is the current percentage increase in the cost of buildings and land being used as part of the capital expenditure for health services in the hospital and community services for England.

Sir K. Joseph

Since 1969 hospital departmental building cost allowances have been increased by 90 per cent. It is not possible to give an average increase for the cost of land for hospital building, which varies considerably according to land potential and location.

Mr. Pavitt

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services what was the capital expenditure in England by the National Health Service in each of the three sectors, hospital, local executive councils and local health authorities for the year 1969–70 and for the years 1972–73, 1973–74; and what are his estimates for 1974–75.

Mr. Alison

The information is as follows:

Service (Staff Transfer Schemes) Order 1974 were laid, as a matter of urgency, before final printed copies could be made available.
